Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This work is inspired by the artist's love of nature, rocks and the sea. There is a critical point in art where you have to take a risk and this is what this painting symbolises. The central panel shows the lowest point and there is a yellowish light, calling the subject within. The rocks either side have an almost cloud like, or sea-foam appearance, adding the surreal element of the imagination because the drop off is the invitation to see things in a different light, where there is no clear divide between imagination and reality.
Green is the colour of creativity which is why the main body is this unusual jade green; not quite sea nor sky. The trailing clouds in the top right are old thoughts passing away.

Artist Profile

Born: 1970

Hometown: St. Leonards-On-Sea

Based in: Sussex

My training was in Philosophy and art only found me in my later life. I prefer to engage with larger canvases -they give one so much freedom. My painting style tends to fall into two main camps. On the one hand, a nebular, ethereal body of work, which expresses a certain state of almost prayerful devotion. The other is a more design oriented style. I have work in collections all around the world and have been featured in curated collections by Saatchi.
