Quink Ink and Bleach on Cotton Khadi Paper, 2020
One of a series from my current work exploring spaces, landscapes and structures—man-made or organic, and the interplay of one against and within the other.
Man has stamped his boots on the earth, built monumental engineering and architecture, constructed environments, and populated landscapes, later discarding those creations and moving on when use has been fulfilled.
The story of those left-behind places is frequently an interesting one—whether it’s a story of decay and return to the earth, or one of life breathed back and a renewed purpose given.
I want the shapes I describe to be something both intangible yet instantly recognisable—solid objects, the space in between them, or an atmosphere created by light, shade and colour.
Please note; this painting has rough, uneven edges that give it it’s own particular character.
