“It is my aim that the works provoke questions of the metaphysical and subtly hint at the sublime, challenging preconceptions of our existence within nature and addressing our inferiority and mortality in relation to it. The paintings are made in response to my own experiences and relationship with the natural environment. From a young age I have consistently immersed myself in the landscape, swimming in the ocean and skiing in the mountains.
From these engagements, I have not only learned to appreciate the unrelenting beauty that these environmental wonders possess, but have also been enlightened to the dangers they can present and how, one on one, we are hugely dominated.
Reward should always come from respecting this bond.
In the studio, I paint impulsively and let this connection be the main source that I work from, often incorporating elements from photographs or sketches that I have made on location and, using oil paint, build my compositions through methods of abstraction to create a final image that is often free from formal structure and is open to interpretation.”
