Emerging From The Fog
This series is a reflection of the intransient and overcast nature of my emotions in 2019. The blurred edges between sky, cloud and land represent my search for clarity and security in early 2020.
In Rhythm With The Hills
The inspiration behind this series is intimately connected to the sensation of walking through time, across the many footpaths and ancient bridleways surrounding my studio.
The textures of these pathways underfoot are replicated in my art using layers of paint and mark-making, scratching, sanding and peeling them back to reveal the history of the painting as it develops.
Have you ever heard a cathedral bell ring to herald the arrival of the first migrating birds of the year? This beautiful tradition still followed in Christchurch New Zealand, brings to mind the vast expanses that these birds traverse and the unbridled joy of flight through open spaces.
I am captivated by the land, sea and sky bleeding together with no fixed horizons and the views that the birds see as they soar, dip and glide under a hot sun surrounded by the milky blues of the sky and sea. The birds are following ancient routes invisible to the naked eye but predetermined by their ancestors, much as modern day shipping and leylines are to us. As I paint, I join these birds in flight and see the world through their eyes.
