In this new body of work created over the past two and a half years the paintings, while abstract in expression, are representative of an ongoing dialogue with the natural world. Recently I was lucky enough to spend a couple of months traveling in South America and the Galapagos Islands – much of the work comes from being immersed in the landscapes and gardens of these far flung places in addition to the quiet of my own garden at home and the countryside around me.

 

The work is allowed to develop slowly. I build up many layers of gesso and paint inscribing into the surface, stripping and sanding back in a repeated process to expose the underlying surface detail and pattern. My work as a sculptor has given me the confidence to construct and deconstruct in this way, and the resulting work often reveals a complex history both on and beneath the surface.

Events:

Opening Night – 21st October 5:00 to 7:00pm
