'this is where I am' is a collection of abstract paintings completed between 2022 and 2023.
My process is an intuitive one. Mostly I start with the germ of an idea; a colour or a shape, something that inspires me from perhaps an artist's work, or something I've seen somewhere - often while moving around Melbourne, I'll take a photo of something that catches my eye and these things become the starting point for a painting.
I love the process and the freedom that spontaneity allows me. For me, painting on a daily basis has been a creative journey that gives me a unique feeling of satisfaction, that is hard to find in other ways.
- Artist, Michael Haywood
