Lobelia Pathway 2

These paintings are a continuation of the Blue Grass / Pathways project, started in 2008. These three were never completed and over a period of 5 years, have periodically, been worked on, trying to bring them to a conclusion. In May this year, I was walking the coast path from Wembury to Noss Mayo in South Devon on a beautiful day and the solution presented itself. The sky was blue and cloudless, the top of the cliffs were a carpet of flowers with a riot of colour, everywhere I looked nature was bursting into life. I immediately returned to the studio and worked these paintings up and the result is an interpretation of that day.

Photography and Painting have always been the tools of preference for my creative process with one informing the other. In parallel with the photographic landscape interventions and the Found String project, developed a series paintings in which the main criteria was ‘painting that which I could not photograph’, ie, the essence, emotional response of a place. The paintings had to have a certain physicality, both in the scale and the application of the paint and felt tactile and of the place. For this purpose I used cutting discs found in situ at Hemerdon Mine to apply the paint along with pallet knives and found objects, a practice that I still use today !

Found Composition 15

Found Composition 15

The ‘Blue String/ Found Composition’ series of work, found at a disused Mine on the edge of Dartmoor, where nature has reduced the buildings, almost to rubble.

The images are records of ‘sculptural drawings’ found in situ and manipulated by the weather. These ‘drawings’ change daily and are very much dependent on the wind and rain for their structure. £120 is the price is for a framed image but mounted images are priced at £90. Much larger images can be accommodated up to 1x1m square printed on various grounds at a separate price, please contact for details.
