Adrian trained as a furniture maker and designer. He has recently focused on turning. He finds the process very liberating after the disciplines of furniture making. He likes to work intuitively without too many rules using wood from the local landscape.
'My work is concerned with the formal language of abstraction; remote yet evocative abstract spaces that create a space for one’s own thoughts, responses and imaginings. There is no attempt at representation or figuration—the work is minimal, direct and spare. Juxtaposing flat colour fields with different surface textures and exploring their response to each other, the work is intentionally pared to a minimum. Despite a restraint in the ritualistic and ordered process of mark making, there is always present the sensual physicality of pastel and paint. An element of duality, of contrast and division, tension and balance, are themes that recur in my work'.
