Originally from Guernsey, Rudi moved to London to work as a musician and divides his time between music, tennis and painting amongst other distractions.
The paintings progress as a kind of moving accident – impulsively selected colour, shaped into form in a kind of improvisation. The more conscious element being the selection of which ‘accidents’ to keep. The end result being a snapshot of the survivors dancing together – happy to be alive. The chosen elements must say something yet coexist with the rest of the painting.
‘I try to paint something, without painting anything in particular. If I can stay away from including representations of real objects it allows more space for a viewer to imply their own perception, in a sense creating a weird colourful mirror.’
