Provenance: The Artist

Note: Herewith a note on Text:
Various and wonderful textual images spring to mind. Within Piero Della Francesca's portraits of the Duke and Duchess of Urbino (reverse side) 1473, the images rest on a bank of text, signifying the importance of the written word as a scaffold for the paintings above.
Cubist works by Braque and Picasso combine text with painted everyday objects depicting fragments from newspapers, signage and still life. In mid-century New York, Jasper Johns paints words and numbers as the whole image, later in Melbourne Bea Maddock paints words with encaustic to create works describing a range of emotional states of being.
Literature and poetry have long found a place in my work, creating layers of meaning, the vestige of a grid to respond to, and a repertoire of marks to make. In the case of single words it may be selecting a word that has disappeared from common usage or to explore a range of related possible meanings. With the expression Oh! interpretations might include rapture, surprise, or sorrow; an indrawn breath or an exhalation. For me there has always been an equivalence between imagery and text, in a fascinating relationship that continues to find new ways of expression.
