This painting was inspired by a fascination with reflections and looking through water to the riverbed. I love how, reflected in the water, the sky and the ground become one entity, changing with the clouds and movement of the water, and becoming almost an abstract painting in constant evolution. This painting is not a direct representation but a recollected memory expressed in paint.

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 !

Garden Recollected Reflections 3

Garden Recollected Reflections 3

This painting continues a body of work where the catalyst is, singular or multiple reflections, often in water but could be anything that reflects light. I often sit, fascinated by the ever-changing compositions that occur with, wind blowing the surrounding fauna, changing light levels, colour reflecting colour onto different surfaces. Colour reflecting off the polytunnel and colour showing through. the light reflecting off shed glass, wet leaves, buildings. I could simply paint the scene, but for me, the essence is in the recollection, the painting is of an emotion and is my interpretation of a recollected memory. I estimate this painting will be ready to despatch by the end of October 2016 because the painting has been recently completed and will need to dry. This painting can be reserved with a small deposit, please contact me for further information.

A continuation of the Blue Grass / Pathways project, started in 2008 These 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.
