Inspired by the aesthetics of minimalism, zen, weathering and aging, the colours and interactions explore a poetical stance through the form of space: becoming something more in the imagination of the viewer as one is transported and transformed.
Here, through the elements of nature, we see the reinactment of objective space through the subjective form - an environmental aspect and the resonances of one form to another embodying a sublime fascination, as well as the use of material from the land and time, forming new objects through the interaction of artistry.
The painting uses rock pigments collected from my walks and travels in the landscape of Somerset, Spain, Cyprus and Mexico. The rocks were collected during my walks and travels, turning into powder and using as pigment to create these small paintings exploring the accidental and incidental.
The combination of listening to music and working with nature, through various elements including the powder, movement of water, sea water, snow water, hailstone water, turps, linseed and gravity exploring the intervention of the artist with a variety of materials and means to capture the essence of the moment, forming these topographical works on paper.
The collaborative pieces between the artist and the materials draw out the natural and the manipulated, forming paintings that explore the movement of nature, entropy and conceptual thoughts influenced in subtle ways through the intervention of sound to form poetical painting with natural materials and industrially made material, resonating with the Anthropocene age.
