This new group of paintings is my most ambitious yet, with expansive panoramas sitting alongside smaller individual paintings.
As I seek to better understand the history, geology and role of a site, my work is taking an exciting journey into the abstract and can sometimes pose a challenge to the viewer as to what they are seeing, as multiple viewpoints confuse the senses and place the familiar alongside the unfamiliar.
Paintings born of the landscape of West Penwith –
infused from the first application with pigment gathered from the land.
These works on paper, at just under 400cm wide, offer an immersive insight into the workings of the land, the industrial history and surface scarring.
Mixing aerial and ground level viewpoints alongside map detail and my own sensory experience, these provoke a sense of the known whilst remaining abstract.
