An exhibition of oil paintings and watercolours. My environment propels me to paint in a particular way. The surroundings effect my perspective on life. It is a type of spiritualism that connects me to the profound.
Our culture feeds off the new and there is often a brevity in the concentration level. I want to slow the vision down encourage an awareness of place, creating an experience that is both thoughtful and sensate. I am constantly seeking out beauty and truth in the development of my work. I endeavour to find these elements in the simple and basic elements that make up our landscape. For me this becomes more and more important in a world that often embraces a culture awash with high resolution visual banality. I aim to make the images seen and felt.
Our environment is always in a state of change now exacerbated by global warming. It is important to be aware of our surrounds as they reflect the human condition. If our world is hotter and dryer then our surrounds will reflect this.
