To me painting is a three way conversation between myself, the landscape and the paint. It is not always equal – sometimes one element will dominate over the others. I start with texture and refine with colour and mood, and try to let the paint be itself – fluid and malleable, and see where it takes me. As each painting progresses I add many layers, in a kind of reverse excavation, creating a surface that is complex and lively, that expresses the exuberance and energy of the natural landscape. I am not trying to make a representation, but to allow the viewer to recognise something of their own experience in the image.
