Nocturnal Recollected Reflections 5

Nocturnal Recollected Reflections 5

Oil on canvas
50cm x 50cm

£385.00
This painting was inspired by a fascination with reflections and looking through water to the riverbed at night-time. I love how, reflected in the water, the moon, passing clouds and the inky blue darkness sky and 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.

This painting is a continuation of my Blue Grass/Pathways project, itself an evolution of my Blue String project based at the derelict Hemerdon mine near Dartmoor.

South Devon Blue Pathway 24

South Devon Blue Pathway 24

These paintings are a continuation of my Blue Grass/Pathways project, started in 2008. These were never completed and over a period of five years I have periodically attempted to bring them to a conclusion. In May this year, I was walking the coastal 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 clifftops a carpet of riotously-coloured flowers, and everywhere I looked Nature was bursting into life. I immediately returned to the studio to work on these paintings and the result is an interpretation of that day.

Blue Grass Pathway

In parallel with other photographic work and my Found String project, I have developed a series of paintings focussing on that which I could not photograph—in other words, an essential, emotional response to a place. Through their scale and particular application of paint, their tactility recalls the environment of Hemerdon Mine in which they originated.
For this purpose, I used cutting-discs found in Hemerdon Mine along with pallet knives and other found objects to apply the paint, a practice which I continue to use today.

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 !
