Derek King


    Derek regards painting more as problem solving and creative exploration rather than direct representation or goal orientation. The resulting expressions becoming more abstracted as he excavates deeper the observations, emotions and processes that feed his intuitive need to paint.

    Working primarily on paper with acrylics affords Derek the freedom to work on several ideas simultaneously, bouncing from one execution to another, pulling ideas together and building a schema that starts a new adventure on canvas.
    From representational beginnings, the work evolves, as each sense of the environment influences the degree of abstraction. The work then moves beyond the familiar, searching for a deeper appreciation of what we experience rather than the acceptance of the immediate.
