I started using board (or MDF, as is known in the trade) on a regular basis for a series of 1995 paintings where I also combined it with Perspex (a flexible and transparent sheet of varying widths). I continued using MDF for my show Analogies (1996) because the techniques that I experimented with required a very strong support. It can be heavy and therefore preferable for small scale formats.

In summer 2013 I felt the need to experiment and let the materials dictate a route that I was prepared to follow. I wanted to put materials together in a drawing sense. Tearing colour paper, bits of my own drawings and monoprints and sticking them together on board happened naturally. I was doing collages! Not surprisingly, the stripping down process has resulted in fairly bare images and stark compositions. They are closer to a more geometric phase of mine of the mid 1990s.
