Artist's description:

*This painting was selected for the Columbia Threadneedle Prize 2018 exhibition, London, UK, 31st Jan -19th Feb 2018*

This painting is part of a body of work inspired by visits to Blackford Pond, a local nature reserve in Edinburgh, last winter. On one day the pond was still partly frozen over, but was starting to melt in the morning sun. Some of the ducks were sitting on the ice, while others swam in the melted areas. The atmosphere was very still and peaceful and the light was clear and fresh.

In my work I am interested in the ways people experience and connect with the natural word, in our modern age, especially children like my own who are growing up in the city. I wonder how important the environment is going to become in all our lives, and in the lives of those who come after us.

The painting is framed in an antique white (hand painted) wooden tray frame, with the edges of the canvas showing.

Materials used:
