River run past tumbledown

Greenacres Gallery | 2008

In this show I find the mood of the landscape through the people I meet along a journey. I interpret this meeting of people and place through colour - sometimes incidental - a small flower, a piece of driftwood can determine the colour of the whole painting. Upon first sight strong colours are evident but upon closer inspection a layering of under paint with slight pigment changes reveals itself. The layering of colour -used to create the mood of place, offers a way of looking at the magic realism in a painting, it’s Otherness.
