Activity in the studio is frenetic! My studio is not big enough. My studio is not big enough. …NOT BIG ENOUGH !
My show in Cardiff is fast approaching and as you can see from the studio pictures, I’m working really hard to finish a complete new body of work. The show opens on Saturday 27th October so SAVE THE DATE and look out for the invite!
Inspired by personal recollections of the coast, my latest work explores the intense yet fleeting nature of memory and its effect upon the present.
“Thoughts come and go like the reflections of clouds passing by on the wet sand or like the flotsam and jetsam washed over the rocks with the tide. Forgetting the everyday, letting everything go and just absorbing the moment allows memories to come, ephemerally, like the sea washing in and out and leaving marks on the landscape. The details don’t matter, what matters is the feeling; the sound of the sea, the gulls, the wind, the smell of the salt in the air, the feel of the elements on your skin, and the thoughts that pass through your head when you’re standing on a beach or a cliff top.”
Here are a few of the paintings that will feature.. just as a teaser!
