Humans recoil from blood.  It is abhorrent to us. In this series of works my aim was to render it into something beautiful – to elevate  it from the violent acts that are so often associated with it.  

The method used here is  abstract expressionism where the  action itself becomes the artwork . The cloth was dabbed into the paint, refolded and dabbed again in the manner that one would staunch the flow of blood from a wound.

Each one of the twelve red oil paint colours I have  used in my work over the past few years has its particular mood.  Alizarin Crimson had the pathos I wanted for this work. This colour  became blood for me – on the canvas and  in my dreams
