'Movement is a key factor in Derek's practice, an abstraction of fluid forms which reflect an interest in the human condition. Elements of soulful musicality and dance are present in the work which explores the philosophy of poetry of the performer themselves. The canvas is rich in texture with minimalistic, monochromatic figures which are delicate and sensual, the process of making mirroring the act of movement which it suggests.'
