“We are all connected” 2019
This abstract piece is based on a previous work of the same name, which explores the visual language of circles/worlds which are connected by a delicate interweaving thread.
“Endless Mystery” 2019
This piece is about endless mystery, or endless knowability. This piece has been accepted on the long list for the Chaiya Art Award 2020. Read a blog post about this painting
“Living, Breathing Tree” 2019
This is my artistic representation of the life and goodness which emanates from nature. Buy a print or card of this painting
“Glory Spill” (inspired by Eta Carinae) 1mx1m, oil on canvas
This painting was inspired by “Eta Carinae”, a stellar system containing at least two stars with a combined luminosity greater than five million times that of the Sun. Like the nebulas, I feel they contain a visual model of expressing the intensity of energy and passion that as humans we can feel inside ourselves….the exhilaration that surfers feel as they ride a wave, the intense devotion a mother feels for her baby; the fierce love between siblings; the endless compassion of parents for their children.
A recent viewer of this painting likened it to “the burning love of God”; yearning compassion to do everybody good, that cannot be contained, but which can be found deep within ourselves, if we are prepared to take an introspective journey.
“A Place of Clarity”, Acrylic on deep edge canvas, 50x61cm
Taking a break from abstract/space scenes, I have been inspired to add to my collection of more realistic paintings including sunbeams. This one uses an impressionistic style, dividing up light into spots of pure colour. Like all my paintings, it is something to get lost in, to soothe the soul and feel rejuvenated by nature.
