My work is concerned with the push and pull between representation and abstraction found in a particular type of landscape. The selective elements and the appropriation of these within the landscape are what define my paintings in such a way.
It is an abstracted view of nature, in a humanized countryside that I want to capture, a sense of looking at something close up and yet far away.
Pattern and repetition has always held a major preoccupation for me in my art. That said I realize a ‘grid’ or repetitious marks can emphasise the ‘anti – natural’ and so is somewhat of a paradox within ‘landscape’ painting. However, it is precisely this what I find fascinating and wanting to explore further.
