“My work comes from a close observation of nature and an intensely experienced subject. The relationship of Space between the spaces. Light creates space creating a platform for the viewer to enter and be drawn to the reality of my paintings. “True directional view of reality, use of simple tones and disposition and energy of the forces to produce what I see. The force behind and direction of energies outside which I empathise with.”
In my own case, the opportunity came about to take a close look at the natural world in a unique place, for which I am deeply indebted to two friends and fellow creatives, with field work in cultivation, that had a steadying and grounding influence, combined with their activities.
