Painting

I paint landscapes in acrylic and oils. In my paintings I try to interpret the mood, structure and feel of the landscape. My subjects are places I have visited where I have been moved by walking in them, or I use photographs of places I have never been to but which make an impact on me visually and compel me to paint them.
I show the landscapes I paint through the patterning of their contours, the rhythms of colour and light so that they offer the viewer a new experience of what the landscape can be. They are abstracted from the ‘real’ world, without being abstract. And to paint like that, I rely on my memory of the place…..who I was with, the time of year, how I felt being there….to all contribute to my expression of place and go beyond what can’t be immediately seen.
“Recollection is the role of the artist…to interpret and offer multiple experiences of the artist’s visual truth”: Richard Diebenkorn
