‘I had three chairs in my house; one for solitude, two for friendship, three for society… When visitors came … there was but the third chair for them all… and… we often parted without being aware that we had come very near to one another…'

By reducing the idea of landscape to blocks of colour, I find great calm and serenity. By eliminating detail of gesture and mark making in my work, it frees the viewer considerably to interpret and appreciate the works openly. In our increasingly complex world, having the opportunity to be open in thought and interpretation is important, as too often we are told how to think and how to see.
Long Gallery, 15th November - 9th December
