Looking at the shape, structure and texture of a variety of species in varying stages of growth and decay is fascinating, leaves are also a constant reminder of time and the seasons passing
Leaves is part of a group of works inspired by nature. While they provide life-long sources of interest, these subjects ultimately form the basis of my abstract paintings which are both hard-edged and yet fluid in appearance. Leaves looks at the shape, structure and texture of a variety of species in varying stages of growth and decay.
The mix of shapes, colours and textures on the forest floor is a delight to the eye and a larder for those animals and foragers that depend on it for their food. To me it is a ‘signature of time’ and a fertile place from which new life will grow.
