I’ve never been interested in the larger picture – it has always been about getting up close. My images and landscapes are found in the patina of oxidised metals, weathered wood and paint; and on sea-washed textures.
I look to mirror images that have similarly existed in the world of abstract expressionist art. However, my images are as natural and organic as the elements that have created them.
I take my inspiration from emotive artists such as Howard Hodgkin or Gerhard Richter – where it’s about creating feeling and sentiment rather than literal representation. My aim is for people to find their own landscapes or seascapes in my work. They are whatever the viewer’s eye wants them to be.
