Statement of Practice.

My work is observational and I often work outside. Looking at nature for a long time is an intimate experience, more is noticed, appearances change as hours go by and I am interested in that mutability as a way place expresses itself. I think of painting as an interaction, a phenomenological mediation on place, its' textures, light and colour. I choose places that have human histories embedded in them, maybe from long ago or more recent, personal or social - I feel these places exemplify the single-ness of human and nature.
