"Evocations and Celebrations of the Landscape"

 
The works on canvas are made in the studio and I also work directly from the landscape with a variety of mixed media on smaller works on paper and canvas . My painting is inspired by particular landscape places or events using drawings, photographs and memory.
When painting outside I try to convey the feeling of being part of the landscape. I have been a keen runner for many years and most of my running is done along the riverside and canal that inspires much of my painting. This allows me to be absorbed by the landscape as I pass through it rather than seeing it as a picture postcard cut out image. I also want to instill this feeling of constant change and movement in my paintings.

 
They are begun in a loose, freely drawn calligraphic way using a series of marks, stains and shapes made with a wide variety of brushes, roller, scraper, sponge, etc. The final image is slowly extracted in a playful, organic way using overlaid marks and glazes to express qualities of nature such as mood, light, colour, movement, atmosphere, space etc. I am attempting to find equivalents for the landscape in the physical qualities of paint, in order to express a feeling of flux in nature. I want the paintings to be intriguing, tantalising and ambiguous held between the plastic qualities of the paint and all the celebratory magical illusions and evocations of the depiction of nature.
