The work comprises drawings & paintings based upon my own photographic images. The intention is for the quality of the medium to respond to the light and sea’s surface without being representational – the whole to be a record of a relationship I’ve had with a set of materials and a methodology.
The photographs are captured from visits to the sea, when the light, cloud, weather, wind & sea surface form the image.
The works are not of the sea, but adopt it as a reflecting medium to provide an image for deconstruction and internalising. The method is a process of simplification to extract the core of the vision and ultimately allow the work to stand alone without comparison to the subject.
Each image conveys the captured moment that presents itself, is gone, then is nearly, but never quite, re-captured; is nebulous and mesmeric; and so has the spiritual quality that references the human condition.
