Retina Series

In my home island of Madeira one is never far from water, whether this is the sea, natural springs, small rivers, waterfalls, and the famous ‘levadas’ – narrow, fresh water irrigation canals that run through dense forest, often high up in the mountains.  The greenery surrounding these canals reflects on the surface of the water and creates ever-changing, semi-abstract shapes and colours.  The physical and visual movement of this water has inspired much of my work, in particular the ongoing ‘Retina Series’ of abstract paintings.  One of my main visual interests is the relationship between colours, and in the Retina paintings I explore both this phenomenon and what paint as a medium can do.
