EXHIBITION “DRAWN TO WATER” 2020
“In this exhibition I explore the Lake District in its many watery instances – its ghylls and rivers, torrential falls and hanging clouds, the bristle of a breeze on the surface of a tarn.
The vision I have explored through these paintings investigates that timeless, human fascination with water in natural settings and the impulse towards contemplation in its presence. At the same time I am offering the viewer a unique, personal insight into the choices that I make in perspective – looking upwards at a rushing torrent, submerged reeds at arm’s length, a shore glimpsed through trees at eye level, beyond the visible horizon – as well as in materials and technique – scratching and reworking of paint and wax enables me to express and reformulate my lived experience of these places. I enjoy paying careful attention to colour, texture and light, thus many of my paintings celebrate the exquisite detail discovered in nature.
