About The Artwork

* Winner of "The Drawing Award" at the Society of Graphic Fine Arts' annual exhibition, DRAW 18, London, October 2018. The distinctive white cliffs of the far south easter coastline of England are a natural and common subject for artists. It it not only the cliffs themselves that hold fascination, but how their presence affects their environment, particularly the sea that wash along their feet. My cliff reflections drawings are inspired by that environmental influence, focusing solely on how the land changes the nature of the sea. Shadows within cliff hollows and caves cast reflected shadow lines across the water. Light tones reflect the sky and pale cliffs. These large drawings aim to retain some of the character and movement of the subject with loose and expressive lines and marks, bringing out the character of the medium and paper. Like all my work, these are derived from personal experience and relationship with the subject. Each drawing is based on photographic reference taken whilst paddle boarding around the Kent coast and provide little-seen perspectives on these iconic landmarks.

I try to make the unnoticed notice-worthy. Inspiration comes from fleeting moments, glimpses of objects hidden in plain sight: an experience, a randomly generated narrative, a shattered piece of wood, the angle of a building, the shape of a wave. The world bombards my senses with more inspiration than I can ever hope to express. Returning to my art after two decades, I have learned the strength of variety and versatility, whilst retaining craft. How something is created – its process and its craft – is as vital to the finished piece as its motivation and subject. Drawing remains my primary focus. Its apparent limitations offer a purity and intimacy that brings artist and viewer closer in a way a painting rarely can. My abstract paintings are an extension of my drawing, incorporating many of the base techniques of mark-making, form, and tone, but with a more expressive and open focus. Continuing themes include solitude, isolation, and exclusion, particularly within - or reflecting the escape from - restless, bustling, cacophonous environments.
