Exmoor from the A361
Painting from the Down to earth series and an emotional response and celebration of the fundamental elements of the Devon landscape, a colour, a curve, an undulation. It also playfully references the Artist's childhood daytrips around Devon, in the back seat of the car. The Artist also fondly remembers detailed discussions between family members about the best route to take to reach ones destination. Signed on the canvas side and ready to hang.

From the series Spatial history, a series of autobiographical landscapes, with emotional, personal connection to significant place identity: selective memories, like possessions, needing to be cleared and ordered, familiar loved places, people, events and the passage of time, leaving an atmosphere of nostalgia and saudade, a yearning for time past and loved ones gone. Painting is signed on the canvas side and ready to hang.

Spatial history, is a series of autobiographical landscapes, with emotional, personal connection to significant place identity and the passage of time. Absentee pennant was produced after the death of a much loved family member, and is both a celebration and reflection of time spent with him. An Absentee pennant is a special pennant flown to indicate the absence of a commanding officer, whose flag is still flying. During the painting process I explore the fine line between pure abstraction and figurative recognition, between chance and control using water based oil and acrylic. I would like to convey a mood, an atmosphere, a saudade ( a love that remains ) for the viewer. The painting is signed on the canvas side and ready to hang.
