About the Show:
Away from the madness of society, one is free to observe nature’s lessons. Violent erosion. The colours of lichen and moss. Grey rock, cracked, shattered and worn. A fallen tree. An owl’s nest. The carcass of a dead deer. There is infinite meaning and endless value in every view, if only we become quiet and open enough to read the scripture of the landscape.
With this series I aim to break free from the four walls of my studio and experience the act of painting 'En Plein Air” - in the open air. Painting from life is an extraction of time; a capturing of the essence of existence during a specific moment in the artist’s experience.
The paintings of this series are fresh off the easel, all created within the last three months. They seek to explore the act of observation, and most especially how experiencing discomfort can affect both the act and the outcome. My goal is to remain in greater equanimity with my surroundings as I attempt to place a bookmark in the current spirit, vitality and essential character of our local landscapes.Show Map
