Drawing upon elements of abstraction my paintings seek to capture the atmospheric and transient qualities of the landscape- contemporizing the traditional landscape. Through an alternation of line, colour and texture each painting takes on its own unique setting. Intuitive yet considered I want my paintings to portray a raw energy and sense of mystery where each individual viewer can form their own perspective on the work. Rather than replicating an image I seek to evoke the aura of a place, to capture an atmospheric scene or moment in time- immersing the viewer in a sense of space and timelessness.
