The edge of my world

Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead use shapes, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect

This painting originated as a ‘blind’ drawing of pots and brushes set out ready for me to start work. It is also by nature a one line drawing. It was produced at a one-day workshop held by Annie Monk (at The White Horse Book Shop, Marlborough) on using acrylics to produce the abstract image. This simple line construction was our starting point – some people then turned their drawing through 90 degrees to put another set of working lines over the first. My natural inclination was to maintain a connection to reality which is why my piece still offers the viewer a strong visual reference.
