Inspired by the the reflection of light from the earth, Elemental Earth II is reminiscent of a deep sunset or volcanic eruption, colour and light that emanate from the landscape. My work takes many months to complete, working on wood panel with handmade traditional gesso, oil paint, gold leaf, enamel and dry pigments.
I try to create a lyrical vision of nature, the way landscape can change with subtle shifts of light and atmosphere. An evocative fusion of observation and dreamlike imagination.
