Diary of Wishful Tendencies


Art as a diary ...

Art as a diary, the days counted by abstract expressionist landscapes.

The diary – coloured by the seasons and landscapes of Abruzzo, Italy – reflects my moods following a personal loss.

It was a loss which landed me in absolute emptiness – the outside world not touching me anymore, hiding in a cocoon, going through a process of healing. Eventually the process of healing became the process of creation – in which I myself became the subject.

And these abstract expressionist paintings became my diary.

Living and working in Abruzzo, Italy is inspiration for these works – you’ll see the colours of the soil, sea, olive groves and sky.  You’ll see hilltop villages which suddenly appear as you round a bend in the road.  Snow topped mountains as you enjoy an unhurried lunch on the terrace of a trattoria.
