Late 1960’s DISCOVERY

The artist is strongly announcing his favoured, strong colour palate now, and this will remain for the most part as a signature of his works. Broad knife and brush laden with colour is generously applied with expressionistic energy on painted surfaces that now have become larger.

By the late 1960’s, another road to discovering himself opened. For the most part, the nude dominates.  Figures drift and float in their almost non-descript environment.  The beyond surreal, and near dreamlike quality of the paintings, together with their particular saturated colour palette, make these works strongly of their time period, and totally in harmony with a modern aesthetic, that ran through all the arts and design world of the 1960’s.

The content of the paintings are much more felt as representations as opposed to the clear representation from any of the earlier works.  This productive period came to an abrupt end, and, was followed by a most distinct departure from all that had gone before.
