Nature Strikes Back 
  
RECENT PAINTING (2016-2017)

These highly textured paintings are both inspired and composed by mixing acrylic, leaves, bark and other natural materials found in the garden of my new house. However, they are also a response to loss and have been a way of processing a period of change, trauma and grief in which colour had no function.

The substitution of pigment with the subtlety of raw, natural colour and texture, however, is also a reminder of how spectrums have changed and the extent to which constant movement and intense colour saturation has become the norm in our contemporary visual environments. 

Most of this ongoing series was exhibited at the Hastings Art Forum from November 1st - 13th 2016.  A review of the show appears in the Hastings Independent Press.
