Number 2 in a series about fear, with darkness being a metaphor for change, difference, low confidence, bad things in life and general states of fear and anxiety. It is about change, movement, brightness and opening up to possibilities despite our fears

In the past I found it difficult to work on paper for many reasons – it was too flat, no edges, size, fragility, I couldn’t get face to face with the paintings whilst working on them. Anyway, last year I challenged myself to try again and although a few failures, I did get some pretty stunning results without having to adapt my style or materials too much. 

I Am Not Afraid of the Dark 
It is full of remembered symmetries that have slid through smooth spaces, over fallen rocks & buoyed on tidal races. 
I Am Not Afraid of the Dark 
It echoes with the murky depths of life, whose battles for survival are mingled in the dirt trodden by multiples. 
I Am Not Afraid of the Dark 
Infinite possibilities emerge as startling realisations of future opportunities whose radiance shines bright with the light of living.
