Review: Chess Boards


During my time with my “log” theme this year, I introduced a chess board  into several drawings.  Above, “Surreal Landscape” below, ‘Remembering Trees”. My late father was a brilliant chess player and I never saw him beaten in a game. I on the other hand, never learnt the game although I appreciate the strategic thinking it demands. I have used similar game boards several years ago in paintings. The symmetrical nature of the board, skill, luck and chance are closely interwoven in a series of symbolic works aided by my interest in logs. These works are a commentary on the secular world and the influence or effect of Christianity.
