This body of work was created over an interim period of 2009 - 2010. It was the last broad collection of work in which there was not a specific focus. While the majority of paintings involved exploring making marks with colour in reaction  to various pieces of music, then giving the marks a clarity of narrative with line drawing, there is also patches of time where I have skipped into autobiographical story telling, subject-irrelevant fiction and experimentation. It was during this particular "unthemed work" period that I discovered that I prefer a thematic creative process that encompasses a fictional, philosophical or emotionally boundaried structure to work within.
