Nature Strikes Back 
  
RECENT PAINTING (2016-2017)

These highly textured paintings are composed of white acrylic, leaves, bark and other natural materials found in my garden. They emerged as a response to the loss of my brother to suicide in 2013 and have been a way of processing a period of change, trauma and grief in which my perception of colour was lost.

However, what has also emerged from this subtlety of raw, natural colour and texture is a stillness and order that is in stark contrast to the constant movement and intense colour saturation of our contemporary visual environment.  

Most of this ongoing series was exhibited at the Hastings Art Forum from November 1st - 13th 2016.  A review of the show appears in the Hastings Independent Press.
