My work emerges in series, often seasonally, which you can view below.
Time in rural surrounds, isolated to the edge of the land, allows you experience the seasons elements more deeply. These works are a visual interpretation of these experiences; the winter light’s stark shadows which linger, fading low on the mountainside; the pure vast darkness of an overcast night on the peninsula; wild winds howling through the wet winter grasses. By pulling and dragging colour and texture across the canvas with the same energy felt from the crashing rain or by manipulating the visceral medium of paint to create a balance of motion, each piece gestures to presence in a fleeting moment. This series pushes the viewpoint away from specifics and expresses the whole, the essence of the landscape.
