EARLY WORK

Shown here are several key works first painted in my first few years after my departure from working as an architect. I did not place a significant amount of mental energy into anything conceptual, although I knew I had a tendency towards abstraction and colour combinations. There were at times though, were painting became my saviour, as it pulled me out from depression and negative thinking, to which I am not fearful of revealing. My own negativity and lack of confidence in my own undertakings as a photographer and artist had taking a toll on me, causing much mental anguish. Compounded by financial difficulties made it hard for me to survive comfortably. In many ways, the colour and vibrancy of the paintings became a counterfoil to my own internal despair, thereby giving me hope and promise of a better way, a better world for me to inhabit.
