My landscapes slowly transition. I catch myself painting figures. As I start from a structure, a shape that can stand or be. A monster? A transient vampire, that lives through the times, where bits of landscape gets stuck to these character-structures, in some cases the bits of landscape takes over, and it -the landscape, becomes the subject; still, like it’s figure counterparts being as much a living breathing thing, as it indeed is! So far removed we are from the living-landscape that we would otherwise miss. The painting looks at you and we want to peer back. 

The set-like framing of the works points to the space within the frame, to this transient space. As the painting pulls together, and I help it on its legs, I see it revealed. The bunching-of-stuff process, helps the painting have a flow and movement, whisked in time, mirroring the ephemerality of life, of all beings and non-beings alike, of eroding cultures and lands, of places I known and never knew.

 

Speedy drawing lines imbue freedom to the painting, it is an integral part of it. The harder cartoon-like outlines accent the forms, renders it ironical, witty, whilst stripping it down, and amplifying, it lends it a reality that is told in the way of painting.
