Craig approaches his subject matter by careful observation and depiction of form to develop an understanding and personal connection with what he sees. He then moves from an observational response to an intuitive one seeking to get beyond the ‘presented appearance’, as Bomberg puts it, to the ‘other side’ of the subject. Craig allows his imagination to speak and inevitably abstract relationships develop within the work resulting in paintings and drawings of an ambiguous form that occupy the space between realism and abstraction.
