Artist's description:

This work is inspired by the flat,expansive and mysterious landscape of the Cambridgeshire Fenland...a vast area of open skies and distant horizons, criss crossed by a lattice of artificial waterways...straight as an arrow.

I hope that viewers will be engaged by the layers of colour, texture and surface qualities of this cold wax painting. I hope that they will respond to the physicality of this work, the numerous marks, striations and incisions in the cold wax material.I hope they will enjoy the interaction of disparate surfaces and layers and the sense of time passing through the landscape and through the painting.

This painting reflects a diverse series of influences; from the 'art povera' movement, through minimalism, expressionism and colour field painting.

The additional photographs provide a clearer understanding of the translucency, subtlety and rich texture of the surface. The solid oak block has matt black deep edges and is ready to hang or place upright on a surface.
