I’m exploring the idea of journeying through the landscape using traditional painting methods alongside working from video and photographs. I want to express my sense of freedom about my frequent trips to West Cornwall from my studio on an industrial estate in London.
I am interested in the interaction between the moving image and my own recorded personal image using mark making as the vehicle. The importance of the authenticity of each brush stroke or line helps to take the viewer with me on a journey in mapping the internal landscape. The exploration and play with different media shows a continuing element of search.
I have just completed a year long mentoring scheme at Newlyn School of Art where I have pushed my practice beyond my usual boundaries.
I also work from the figure using charcoal and inks, as well as on my iPad to create images capturing energy and immediacy.
