In these paintings many of the forms are grouped randomly while others combine into chains or clusters. The artist achieves a three-dimensional quality to the organisms, and also a sensation of movement through their arrangement and treatment. While some works celebrate life's formation, others hint at something darker. In Release there is a suggestion of nature out of control, the sense of threat intensified by the destiny of the black paint. Although it is exquisite and refined, there is a menacing aspect to the picture which evokes contemporary fears about rapacious microbes and deadly viruses such as HIV.
