Artist Statement

This exhibition features paintings based on views of the landscape of Worcestershire and Herefordshire painted in the early morning and late afternoon in order to capture long shadows raking over fields and hills. Although the paintings are representational they lean towards abstraction using constructional spatial devices and subjective colour to describe space.
