Art Description

Collage: Paper, Paint on Paper, Wood.

This current body of work is informed by the natural world and forces such as tidal, gravitational, seasonal and time (chronological).

I walk most days along the coastline near my studio and document the changing horizon. I'm interested in how natural environments effect the psychology of human beings and the rituals we invent in order to interact with the natural world.

Beyond is a meditation on horizon lines and gravity. I wanted the two to 'kiss' in the centre of the canvas.

The word impulse can be related to an intuitive action, and is also the word to describe an electrical current.

My colours are a palette taken from the landscape where I work. It is a coastal seaside town with bright pastel buildings, beach huts and bleached wooden signs.
About the materials..Paper is my primary canvas. I use a high quality watercolour paper from St Cuthbert's mill, which is situated in the ancient Cathedral City of Wells in the southwest of England. St Cuthbert’s Mill has been making paper since the 1700's using one of the few remaining cylinder mould machines left in the world."
