Acrylic on chunky canvas.
My current work includes both large and small paintings, presenting a fresh view of spiritual and psychological ideas, in an abstract way, to bring alive concepts to twenty-first century viewers.
The recent paintings are to some extent a blank expanse of coloured space, that is, a meditative space, possibly enabling people to have spiritual experiences.
Having looked at historical treatments of religious and psychological subjects, this is a new way of looking at these ideas. I used acrylic or oils on chunky canvasses, unframed.
My work often includes large expanses of blank space in calming, peaceful colours, with a relaxing effect, sometimes with a one-sided semi-circle to one side.
The works are unique and quiet, with original designs, in a simple style, usually made from multiple layers of paint.
I am a Visual Artist, living in Hampshire, England, UK, working in art painting and photography.
'The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul.' The Bible, Psalm 23:1-3.
I think I have an identical twin, Julie, who impersonates me and goes to places and events that I go to; I think she behaves badly and as a lesbian and people think she's me, but I'm heterosexual. People bully me because of the situation, and this has spoiled my life.
I think she tells people she doesn't do my art, and people think she's me. I create my own art and photography. So she has spoiled my art career too.
I think she tells people the idea she has a twin is performance art, or a joke, or she thinks it is mental illness. But I am completely serious - I think she has partly stolen my life.
Loads of things have happened in my life to make me believe all this. However, although this has caused severe problems, I also have positive things in my life, like art, Christianity and a nice home.
