“Exploring ideas of landscape, gesture, expression and representation- these works sample neo-romantic journeys and abstract landscapes inspired by my interest in oceanic seascapes and coastal vistas.
Both my drawings and large immersive oil studies are enquiries into ideas of the bodily, phenomenology and gestural spaces of precipice.These paintings embody the expressive and painterly experiments in my seaside studio over recent months and, I hope, convey the authenticity and energy felt from my expeditions around the UK and abroad in pursuit of inspiration.”
Designed as a collection of immersive, large scale ‘painterly vistas’, this series of abstract nature painting represents a motif of bodily nature through the use of gesture and mark making. Through the visceral application of paint, the focus is to present a mapping of space for the viewer to explore visually.
||Summer Whim -1 & 2
Based on the summer landscape plein air studies of sea, sky and landscape, this pair created to capture the changing skies of summer atmosphere and softness. Simple and underworked in composition, these two works can be exhibited separately or together and embody the fresh whimsy of summer days.
