Space Between 2021
Oil painting; pigment mixed with cold-pressed linseed oil. Painted on plywood or cotton canvas. Drawings; charcoal pencils & compressed charcoal on Fabriano 200gsm paper.
These works, are a conversation between when the tide has gone out, questioning for how long? The reflection on our lives now and the revisiting of a specific area of concern, compelled to document, on the North Cornish Coast.
I felt these works needed to be large scale to reflect the monumental, the enormity and powerful presence these natural forms evoke, from a viewpoint of the rock formations towering before and above me. These paintings take on a life of their own, each having their own personality and a unique quality. I just knew they had to be red & violet paintings but which red and which violet?
These works are part of an ongoing large body of works, Spirit of Place 2019.
