My work has evolved in recent years towards paintings that are more free and open with an increasing awareness of spacial composition and elemental factors. The paintings are a statement about the land and sea, often drawn from wild and rugged areas in a semi-abstract form. They are an investigation into divergent and complimentary forms, their compositional as well as abstract relationships within the natural landscape, offering a human experience of the land rather than its material presence. A sense of place.
Recently, I have been working with oil and cold wax medium, as well as mixed media. I feel this adds expression and dynamics to the artwork. I try to evoke a sense of movement, energy and atmosphere within the work and use colour and mark making to record the textures and traces of the landscape. The process of layering features considerably, reflecting the strata within the landscape, thus forming its own history.
