Art Description

Collage: Paper, Gouache and Acrylic on Paper.

Original painting collage on watercolour paper set in a bespoke hardwood frame and ready to hang.

Kite on Green is part of my new series Esplanade. For me this is the most important work in my career to date as it explores the intricacies of my own childhood growing up in an isolated coastal tourist destination. I've revisited the places I spent time as a teenager who liked to explore abandoned seaside fairs and locked up kiosks in the grey winter months. I've brought the bright pastel coastal colours and graphic shapes sourced from the memories of fun rides, windbreaks and ice cream advertising and mixed it together with the eery solitude of winter.  
The accidental collaged motifs contrasted with bold geometric lines and pattern hark towards my ongoing investigation into the balance between order and chaos.  

About the materials..I am very fond of paper, and it has become 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.
