"The man is faceless in shadow with the searing toplight first illuminating his hat and moving down to the beautiful face of the woman. Here, the light enhances the mystery of the couple as it splashes across the most important areas of their anatomy. Her delicate, nurturing hand and enamoured expression are in contrast to the stubborn symmetry of his shoulders. At the same time the angle of his right leg is mirrored by the gentle slope of her left. All these elements exemplify the spirit of the Tango."
"As far as subject matter is concerned, I have always loved painting people, favouring glimpses of figures and anatomy. Even in the enormous, allegorical works of classical masters, I have always been drawn to confined areas of a piece - a spotlit area that reveals a rigid jaw line, or the twist in a turned neck. Often I like to have images remain that simple - paring down extraneous material to leave what feels ephemeral. Other times, I need more of a setting and the reward is in the discipline of being more representative. Ultimately what makes me work is that, despite all the wonderful breakthroughs and milestones I have experienced in painting over the years, I never feel that I have quite nailed it. There is always more to be done, as I think it is very difficult to measure what your potential is, only the gratification that you have not yet reached it."
