Artist's description:

Painting: Oil Cold Wax and Mixed Media on Canvas

Size: 80 x 80 x 2cm

This is a cold wax mixed media painting on a high quality canvas frame. It is based on my experience of the Fenland landscape. It is not a visual record of a specific place, or a celebration of a well known structure or familiar location. I am interested in surfaces and textures and the way materials can be combined to create tactile qualities. Cold wax can be applied in thin layers or heavy impasto. It can be scored, scoured and burnished like a rich stoneware ceramic glaze; it can left dry, broken, fragmented and uneven.

'But I was saying,
I wandered all along the street that hugs the walls,
a needle floating
on its cloth.
I shut my eyes and felt my way
along the stone.
is the cashcrop, sunflowers, as far as one can see.
the wind rattles in them,
a loose worship
seeking an object,
an interruption.
the walls are beautiful.
They block the view.
