My budgerigar paintings are a melding of the joyous spectrum of Abstract Expressionism, the decorative formalism of Pop-Art, and the wit and humour of working with the imagery of the conundrum of the exotic-ordinary, in my case, rare breeds of common pet birds. My work is both ironic, artistically playing on sublimated forms of humour, while deeply engaged with the key subject of work, the budgerigar.

 

The budgies are set within an abstract field of expressionist, poured paint, depicted disproportionately large, on a totemic pedestal, which is imagery based on my interest in the remarkable social, conceptual, and functional ceramic work of Ettore Sottsass. The expressive dynamic of poured paint, with its fluid, osmotic effects, is also something obliquely influenced by listening to the extended music sets of Jerry Garcia.
