'Burning Sculpture' is another of the 450 x 600mm oil on MDF paintings. Starting as a figurative study, new forms began to take their usual single-minded direction until the idea of cerebral haemorrhage arrived. As it did, the painting began looking like a 20th century sculpture which I immediately set on fire. There is an acceptance of the aesthetic of early 20th century art today which makes those movements merely decorative and therefore vacuous.
