These paintings explore the essence of architectural design. They often focus on parts of buildings and structures to draw attention to detailed geometries and to the architect’s creativity.
Colour is an important aspect and is used to emphasise the visual qualities of the forms and the contrasts portrayed.
The preferred medium for most of the paintings is acrylic on canvas board, allowing for a precision that parallels that used during the design process.
