Part of a new series of work exploring colour and abstraction in landscape painting.
40cm square plus slightly more for the frame, this acrylic on canvas is supplied in a professionally made white tray frame.
For the past year I have been working from sketchbook work, avoiding photos where practical. The reduced amount of information in the reference material allows space for intuition and imagination, and led to my work becoming more abstract as the year went on. The works reflect memories, current joys or worries, according to the headspace in the studio at that moment. I invite the viewer to form their own associations and connections with the work, as they would assign personal meaning to any landscape.
Following an award of grant funding from my local council, I went on a course to study abstract painting and now intend to combine the whole year of development in to producing new works exploring the boundary between abstract and representational landscape art.
