Much of my work is based on the landscape, and particularly mans' marks on the landscape. Themes have included my home territory Dartmoor, the desert regions in Atacama and Arizona, hill country in Wales, and the coastal fringes in Cornwall and the Shetlands. Still related to landscape, I remain interested in representing migration in its widest sense, and memories of friendship and loss.
I have now begun a fresh approach, using colour, form, gestural marks, and instinct to let a painting evolve, relying on memory, intuition, and patience - patience to start again every day, continually overpainting and waiting for something exciting to emerge.
The current work shown below is mainly the work in progress for my solo exhibition at the Penwith Gallery in St.Ives in 2019.
