Immersion - deep involvement - describes both my working process and my connection to landscape.
A day spent painting or drawing en plein air is an all-encompassing experience of fluctuating light, weather and comfort levels. These conditions, along with an intense focus, result in work that tracks a dialogue between observation, memory and abstract mark making. Mark making is key - the ability to describe both emotional intent and observation in one mark.
I take an expressive, physical approach to art making - working fast, boldly and intuitively. In the studio I balance this with long periods of contemplation and stillness - thoughts punctuated by bursts of activity.
My aim is to keep a tension and oscillation between representation and abstraction. An overwhelming sense of abstract expressionist mark-making when viewing the work up close which coalesces into recognisable forms as the viewer moves further away.
