This painting is part of ‘The Light’ series. It measures 80 x 80 cm and is based on the landscape of the Cambridgeshire Fenlands. The effect of depth and translucency is achieved by a process of layering and erasing. Paint has been thinned with a glazing medium,  liberally applied with large brushes then partially removed with an assortment of old ‘T shirts’ and cloths. The parallels with stratification, sedimentation, accretion, erosion geology are potentially poetic yet alas coincidental………….ah, but are they?

The Light Series

The Light Series

Nightfall

This is a series of 80cm x 80cm acrylic paintings on high quality canvas frames. These images represent a personal reflection on landscape at different times of the day as the seasons and the light ebbs and flows……they are based on the open fields and skies of the fenland in East Anglia. No one should feel confined or constrained by a particular location; these paintings have no topographical information to act as a compass or guide, they use the universal language of horizontals and geometric divisions……earth and sky, often in unequal partnership. They are an archetype, a diagram or blueprint, a stripped back code symbolizing the fundamentals of walking upright and looking out across the land; just as we have always done.
