Bren Head | North Yorkshire
Born in Blyth, Northumberland, presently living and working in Robins Hoods Bay, North Yorkshire.
“I have a natural curiosity about people and I am fascinated by the human face. However, I like to think that my ‘heads’ describe a line somewhere between figurative and abstract. They are rarely about capturing a conventional likeness and rely on memory to create a finished piece.”
“My work changes as ideas evolve, but fundamentally my paintings, whether abstract or figurative, will always be about multi-layered, dense, textured surfaces. Destroying and re-building layers is part of the working process essentially resulting in fragile and unstable surfaces where torn fragments, cracks and eroded surface have real significance and the image itself may become obscured, blurred or ill-defined.
