"Landscape Remembered - Landscape Revealed"
June 26th - July 29th
Painting itself, by it's very nature, is a singular, solitary existence. For me, it is always about retreating into my own journey - making art true to my idea, that is real & honest. I am summoning memories, telling the same story over & over again. There are no people in my work, but there is often a suggestion of their presence, a trace of humanity. Self, place, belonging & the land have long been central themes in my work.
Sometimes, I have thought my work old-fashioned because it wasn't cool or in vogue.
But now, I am happy to make a place for myself beyond the necessitudes of fashion.
