Tachist Studies 1997
                                                  The works in this suite of small panels were executed in thick oil paint applied with a painting knife. The use of direct mark making and the
                                                              building up of succesive layers recalls the work of the Parisian tachist painters in the 1950's. There is often a landscape reference in these works
                                                              and a tendency towards blurring the borders of realism and abstraction, as in the work of Nicholas de Stael, an artist who was an
influence on the series.
