Art Description

Painting: Watercolor, Ink and Household on Paper.

Under the Pier is part of my new series named '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 tried to bring the bright pastel coastal colours or graphic shapes sourced from the memories of fun rides, windbreaks and ice cream advertising together with the eery solitude of winter.

Under the Pier is a reference to teenage years, passing the time in the summer evenings hanging around under the pier, sand on our feet and lines of pier shadows falling onto the wet sand, footsteps passing overhead.

Watercolour and Ink collage on Waterford Saunders St Cuthbert's Mill watercolour paper

Set in a bespoke hardwood frame stained white

About the materials... I am very fond of paper, and it has become my primary canvas. I use the very best watercolour paper from St Cuthbert's mill, which is situated in the ancient Cathedral City of Wells in the southwest of England. St Cuthberts Mill has been making paper since the 1700's using one of the few remaining cylinder mould machines left in the world.
