Inevitability of the Future

Cold wax, insects, Paintings


More from my series influenced by the ancient landscape that surrounds us, the standing stones and the symbolism of the circle, with pearlescent pigments playing with light, depicting UK butterflies and bees endangered from man’s interference with their habitat.

Capability Brown, Landscape, Paintings

My Landscape series explores how we can learn from the past, and not be afraid to challenge accepted conventions. I’m interested in using the works of Capability Brown whose tre-centenary it is this year as the basis, as he redefined the way we view the English garden. He wasn’t without his critics at the time, but we now accept his designs as being part of the natural landscape. I’ve used silver leaf to represent the expensive geometric patterns of the past with Brown’s flowing naturalistic style.
