The Quiet of the Earth (series)
This sculptural series of paintings explore my interest in what we often miss.
Those small, precious moments / sights / happenings that we so often overlook as we focus forward rather than being present and observing the beauty that surrounds us.
With these works I press the pause button and give the viewer a window to those small, beautiful moments.
A chance to remember the softly rolling hills with their subtle gradations of greens /blues / darks and lights. To cradle the crusty, pearlised beauty of delicate coral found in a rockpool. To reminisce the way light hits and scatters on the swelling tide as it plunges to meet the sand.
These paintings are my attempt to shine a spotlight on earths small treasures and make them the stars of their own stage.
