Inspiration and Meaning behind the Painting

The Fenlands of Britain exist in an imaginary space, out of time and out of step with an increasingly homogenised and utilitarian world.

They are made up of woodlands, wet grasslands, marsh, bogs, meadows and shallow ponds – teeming with life. There is a constant visual interplay between grasses, reeds and water, between bramble, branches and sky. Slow-moving rivers, lodes and streams are seen through a tracery of golden arches and erratic parabola. A rhythmic dance of crescent-like shapes weaves an intricate latticework against the deep blue skies. As Winter ends, a collective movement towards the light signals a regeneration, a new-found optimism a barely concealed delight.

This is an oil painting with cold wax medium and assorted enamels, dyes and pigments. The first layers of translucent colour are applied with a brayer and allowed to dry. Subsequent layers are finely textured with crumpled cellophane from the canvas packaging - recycling at its best.

Close-Up of Artwork

Gold enamel is trailed, poured, printed and spattered onto the surface, accompanied by a Jackson Pollock tribute dance. The viscosity is adjusted, changing the rate of flow. Within the constraints of gravity, reassigned kitchen utensils offer alternative trajectories; knives, forks and spoons, dripping in gold, recreate the illusion of falling.






It has been said many times before that of all the arts, painting is ultimately about time. You could say that painting is a representation of time frozen, arrested and fixed. Paintings (kinetic art excepted) don't move or change, to any noticeable degree. But you could just as easily say a painting is not static, you could argue that it embodies time; in the accumulation of events, in the patient building of surfaces, in the endless adjustments, modifications and corrections; in the life experiences and intentions of the artist, in the weeks and months of creation, in the judgements and decisions, ideas and influences.

The final painting is a point chosen by the artist, when he or she decides it is complete, knowing that it is never really complete or final. In our looking glass worlds, we bring our history, perception, ideas, knowledge and preconceptions. Everything is seen through the prism of experience.
