This year I have entered three small works in the Eskleigh exhibition. There is no traditional landscape of a recognisable location, rather I have selected different media for their ability to communicate a particular mood or intent. Each painting is accompanied by a short (max25 words) statement which I have included here.
Meditation. (Watercolour). Light filled space, calligraphic foliage, balance. Simplicity. Zen influences create a meditation on paper.
Beach Abstraction. (Coloured Pencil: Inktense and watercolour pencils). Exaggerating the colours and tonal contrasts emphasises the abstract qualities of these natural forms (bull kelp).
Industrial (acrylic, encaustic and gold leaf on gallery stretched canvas) Representing the range of textures evident in industrial areas, usually adjacent to water. Polluted landscapes, but within, spots of beauty can be discovered.
