During my last year in the Crawford I concentrated on the landscape of Slievenamon. Initially my work was small, but in the end I was working on quite a large scale. Recently I was looking at a series of small abstract monoprints I had made in 2003. I felt challenged to work with abstract forms on a larger scale. Working in this way was like opening a door into new territory, and I felt exhilarated and relieved to be working abstractly. With each canvas I discover anew an inner landscape, where some doors are closed and others opened. Perhaps I don’t know where they lead to but I’m enjoying finding out.
