From late last summer I have been working on paintings inspired by plants in the Norfolk hedgerows observing their changing forms and colours, their simple and complex designs their interaction with rain, sun and wind. These paintings in acrylic on paper are gestural and textural and are the result of my time spent studying, photographing and sketching these gems of the countryside. To see paintings, click here
I mentioned in my previous notes that I had be working on a series of ‘firework’ paintings. These represent a spectacular firework display over the inner harbour at Brixham when the tide was in. My fascination with the shapes of the explosions, their reflection in the still waters and the saturation of the surrounding harbour structures and floating boats by the coloured compounds released into the night sky led to this series of paintings a few of which are shown here.
**** NEW - A Feast for the Eye ****
From Saturday 25th September to Sunday 3rd October I will be taking part in this year’s NOS in a group show along with two other Ringstead artists, David Lendrum, Helga Joergens, at the Ringstead Village Hall, West Norfolk, PE36 5JU. Our works are Individual yet complimentary, united in bold forms, colour and texture and should present a colourful and uplifting exhibition.
