I was recently reminded that as a child I would watch the clouds in the sky and flames in the fire and conjure up characters and stories out of the forms that materialized. As an artist I have returned to that same process. The –scape series offers access to the potential of our imagination. The creative process for each piece is long. Each layer builds on the one before, with time and space to respond before adding the next. It is the extension of this process that I present to the viewer. An abstracted image created by manipulating colour and light, pushing the physical and conceptual boundaries of the medium. Providing a metaphor for the self, through which we gain a subtle moment of freedom and a sideways glance at understanding.
