REVIEW BY MARK COCKER Author & Environmentalist

The real challenge for me as an artist is not simply to record exactly what is in front of me but to somehow reveal the hidden narrative lying beneath the surface.
Looking at the landscape from multi perspectives enables me to create layered, richly textured surfaces which explore the effects of time, the elements and human activity upon the land.
Often based upon the coastal regions of Norfolk where I live and parts of Australia and Africa which I frequently visit, the work develops from walks and sketches gathered over a period of time.
The place itself also acts as the source of the paint I use. I collect red and yellow ochres, sand, chalk and shingle to make my paints, grinding and mixing these materials with resins, both opaque and transparent. Woad indigo for the blues and madder for the pinks and purples, further connects me to the ancient history of the Norfolk landscape and to the people who inhabited this land before us.
