Maritime Series 2018
I like to manipulate the paint, playing with layers and textures scraping over a wax surface and blending with sponges and rags. The creative process is often instinctive but subjects can sometimes develop over time and although I am drawn to abstract forms and structures I can find images within the abstract composition and the work can suddenly begin to evolve. Colour is important and I will always be inspired by natural elements, I like the contrast of earthy tones mixed with more vibrant hues of orange and purple. The maritime series has a dominant aqua tone combined with yellow ochre and hints of crimson.
The maritime series of works developed from my interest in the colours and textures found within the coastal landscape, the subject isn't at first apparent but through the use of these colours and exploration of forms and texture would hopefully resonate with the viewer.
A beacon is a light or a fire, usually on a hill or tower, that acts as a signal or a warning. ... If someone acts as a beacon to other people, they inspire or encourage them.
