Notes from the artist: This recent painting draws on the wild and rugged beauty of Cornwall, which continues to provide an infinite source of inspiration for my abstract practice. I rely completely on my memory of colour, atmosphere and light when painting in my studio. Enveloped Forms portrays the moment the swell of the sea envelops rocks that are partly submerged. An abundance of expressive brush work evokes the movement of the sea, contrasting with sharply defined, scribed lines that depict the hard edges of the rocks. The use of line is vivid and energetic, juxtaposing layers and textures within the painted surface.
