"I have recently started a new series of acrylic paintings, which are colourful abstracts with references from nature, science and my back alley. Reminiscent of such painters as Kandinsky, Gorky and Chagall, they are renderings of imagination, leaning towards lofty and
airy--perfect for a balcony setting. As a scenic painter for theatre I have a great deal of experience producing work for the theatre audience, ie. being aware of sight lines and context--not all theatre is played in a black box; parks and plazas become the realm for the bard." -skai fowler
