In homage to one of my biggest inspirations, John Cage on what would have been his 106th birthday (yesterday) here is one of my pieces from 2016 replicating his indeterminate processes from his Ryoanji series of prints.

In belated homage to Phillip Guston on his birthday, (27/6/1913) here is my piece from 2017, inspired by his zen Buddhist inspired ink work.

And if you’re really painting YOU walk out”
