Oil, Charcoal and Conte on Canvas
Flood and Ebb 3
In this new series of paintings entitled Flood and Ebb I find that the canvases echo the marks, lines and shapes that we made in the wet, grey sand of my home town beach: thus the canvas becomes the beach that acted as the large- scale canvas of my child-hood. In these works I have allowed myself to move freely from one work to another with a sense of play and random mark-making. Through the use of colour, of scribbled lines and drip marks, contrasting with the blocks of background painted areas, I have attempted to capture the tides and the occasional gleam of sunshine.
