Beneath & Beyond: The Hidden Landscape
I love the landscape of the British Isles: the rocks we scramble over, the different earths and soils we trudge along whilst out walking. How did the solid beneath our feet get there, and what lies there? And what is viewed further along the pathway, towards horizons? The history, and mystery, of ‘beneath’ and ‘beyond’ continues to feed my curiosity with intriguing possibilities to explore.
My paintings are built up with many layers of oil and cold wax medium, and then dug into, scraped and excavated back to the history beneath. Thin veils of paint can also be layered over a composition then softly dissolved away revealing an aspect of landscape seen through different weathers and atmospheres, or evoking a sense of mystery, legend, or times past.
Intriguing, exciting, and often frustrating, it is never boring for me to paint like this and it perfectly suits my love of history combined with geography.
I always hope viewers will relate to my work in their own personal way.
