I wonder if Mark Rothko also painted with old ‘T shirts and cloths?

80 x 80 cm Acrylic on Canvas After Glow  This painting is part of ‘The Light’ series. It measures 80 x 80 cm and is based on the landscape of the Cambridgeshire Fenlands. The effect of depth and translucency is achieved by a process of layering and erasing. Paint has been thinned with a glazing medium,  liberally applied with large brushes then partially removed with an assortment of old ‘T shirts’ and cloths. The parallels with stratification, sedimentation, accretion, erosion geology are potentially poetic yet alas coincidental………….ah, but are they?

'After Glow' 80 x 80 cm Acrylic on Canvas

'Afterglow' 80 x 80 cm Acrylic on Canvas. This painting is part of my ‘Light’ series and is based on the landscape of the Cambridgeshire Fenlands.


This image is a personal reflection on landscape......for me, the open fields and skies of the fenland in East Anglia. But no one engaging with this work should be confined or constrained by a particular location; this painting has no topographical information to act as compass or guide; it uses the universal language of horizontal and geometric divisions......earth and sky in partnership. It is an archetype, a diagram or blueprint, stripped back to the frame, walking upright and looking out across the land; as we have always done.


The effect of depth and translucency is achieved by a process of layering and erasing. Paint has been thinned with a glazing medium, applied liberally with large brushes then partially removed with an assortment of old ‘T shirts and cloths. The parallels with stratification, sedimentation, accretion, erosion and geology are both poetic and intentional.
