“Abstract blue and green light” is nspired by the Haldon Forrest in the South Hams, Devon, near to where I live. This is one in a new series of paintings examining the play of light. The abstract nature of this new series gives a freedom for the viewer. The painting does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead use shapes, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect.
Being a Teignmouth based artist means live close to the Haldon Forest, the ocean and Dartmoor. This proximity to the South West Coast and the wild untamed landscape of the moor has influenced my recent work. I often return to the work of Kurt Jackson and Peter Doig for inspiration and a sense of place.
