Artist's description:

This painting takes on the mimesis of a topographical landscape as seen from above in the atmosphere looking down. It takes on the appearance of a section of a rock or of a planet: a typographical landscape with the remnants of a crater from some past catastrophe.

The colours and interactions form a poetics - becoming something more in the imagination of the viewer. For a time when one looks upon the image, one is transported to another landscape, akin to those photographic images of data sent back from satellites sent far and wide to record information from our solar system and beyond - recording planets, deciphering information to seek the viability of a rock harbouring life. Here, working with the elements of nature (gravity, movement, pouring, dripping, flinging) a reinactment of entropy from the environment forms another kind of landscape art.

Resonances of one form to another embodying the sublime and our fascination with environment and our use of materials to form objects to utilise in the world of humankind.

The painting uses rock pigments collected from my walks and travels in the landscape of Somerset, Devon, Spain, Cyprus and Mexico. These rocks were powdered and used as pigments to create these small postcard paintings - postcards harking back to our travels and those messages we send back home with the call: 'Wish you were here!'.

The miniture paintings are applied to board and placed into a handmade box frame.
