This exhibition represents work completed from 2015 to the present, exploring how by ‘doing’; the purpose of what is done, becomes apparent.

About

There are two aspects to this exhibition. Firstly a series of landscapes, still-life and portraits, painted from observation (the 'doing') and secondly a selection of current work; concerned with our industrialised world and its relationship with nature and which explore an imagined world, we may be creating.

These paintings combine with my research into how we have, since the industrial revolution, seen nature as a resource to be used to fuel an apparently perpetual economic growth. The depletion of these resources will ultimately make this unsustainable.

It is this synthesis of practical experimentation, research and my individual life experience that reveals the purpose behind 'what doing does' although it has had other unexpected consequences: it has informed and revitalised my interest in garden design and I have started walking the 630 mile South West Coast Path, with my partner and two dogs!
