As i felt increasingly at home with visual media i cam to understand I 'thought through seeing', that many concepts and understandings of mine were visual first and verbal second. Paint what you see not what you think you see (Johnson Hutchings) stood me in good stead. What happened as I painted what i saw and not what i thought i saw was that other ingredients came in, they were inseparable, before reflection, from what I saw.
Jumping across decades my path developed into my being an artist researcher. Researching ideas through my art, testing them against current knowledge, discussing and arguing a case that came into being through artpractice research.
