Towards the Hill
For some time I have been seeking a way of depicting the landscape and after various trials New Landscape Project has come into being. Instead of looking at the landscape figuratively, the NLP paintings are exploring the environment and combining texture and visual experience into an image. By combining acrylics with substances both natural and found in the landscape complex textures are created.I like to look at the landscape as a mass of merging colour rather than trees fields hills and sky, its important to bring an expression of being in and of the landscape into my artwork. Seasonal change also affect how the artworks develop. Some buildings and figures will enter the compositions when appropriate.
