My most recent body of work, the 'polka dot series', invites words like instinctive, fantastical, playful/whimsical and at times naively objective. They are paintings influenced by my many excursions to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. The local artisans and contemporary artists of that community, whose uninhibited use of pattern, colour, shape and form, implanted a vision that is projected in this new series of paintings. The polka dot series brings to light vivid patterns and colours that seem to have been hidden, or only hinted at, in my past work for so long. This new series projects the stored 'visual recordings' of "Mexicana" perceptions which, when the right association is accidentally struck, are brought to the surface.
