Painting, titled TwoOpen is a studio painting- I call them secret shed paintings; they’re spontaneous and brave and can be about many things.
Here’s what I wrote; ‘Two Open is a painting which celebrates painting. It is a culmination of looking at landscape over the last few years as an entry into what lays beneath the obvious subject. Other ideas are always at play when painting; light, rhythm, pattern, favourite influences. This painting has a little bit of everything which I love.’
