Artist statement for Road trips
I have created a series based on journeys. After relocating to the east of England from South Africa I was taken by the flat landscapes and huge skies. I have used photos taken from a moving car as a source material but the inspiration is the journey moving forward to new ideas and realms. I have used a combination of palate knife and brushes and using the bright colours of my African heritage. I have tried to capture the movement and drama of an ever changing landscape. This also translates into a person journey of life changes leaving behind the old and reinventing yourself in a new environment.
