Catalogue Artist Statement

One of the things that makes painting distinctive is how the perception of time is evaluated: its histories can be visible and at the same time all are firmly in the present. In painting I want something of the immediacy  of drawing: its explosiveness, brevity, rawness and also a type of mark-making that is not consciously directed and informs both the beginning and the final stages of making an image.

We share a liminal existence: occupying a position at, or on both sides of a boundary or threshold. Experiences offer many thresholds between the physical and transcendental, thought and realisation, present, future, past.

Nature can give us moments of poetic experience.  I seek to explore the possibilities and impossibilities of expressing these liminal moments in paint.

The Nomadic Studio kitchen

Grow, forage, Cook, feast.

A kitchen diary; a notebook of thrown-together no time meals, experimentations and delights.

The ‘in-truck’ kitchen, a tiny kitchen cooking fabulous food.

11th September.

I spent the afternoon collecting some of Autumn’s magical harvest. Elderberries (I think these actually have magic properties in them), brambles (we called the fruits this where I grew up in Scotland), autumn raspberries from the woodland garden and an abundance of over-sized White Patty Pan or Turks Head squash. I thought they were supposed to be large, like small pumpkins and keep well through the winter, but I looked them up today and every gardener and cook said that they ought to be 3-4″ across when picked and were a little like a nutty courgette. So I guess I’ll have to tough through the skins and find a dish that works. I wonder if they keep well too?

So much which could be done in the garden and such a joy to do. I did manage to find a courgette, also oversized to mammoth I mean marrow-like proportions, you know, the kind which somehow stay hidden under those prickly leaves, lurking mischievously. I am pleased because despite the glut of this wonderful vegetable, I had forgotten to save one for growing large in order to save seeds from. So this I have done and have them drying in a paper bag.

Roasted home-grown figs with homemade goats cheese, drizzled in oil infused with home-grown basil, topped with pink peppercorns. A little smug I realise, but then how can one not be?

looking up about the colour yellow and wondering about blue pools and
the starry night with the ships winking on the horizons …

March 21, 2012

Today I shall live by the sea…

Looking across the horizon west last night and towards Strumble Head, the half moon shines on the sea and is then engulfed in a cloud that it makes black in the dark blue sky. The sea is a grey blue and the moon’s reflections dance on it like a hologram separate to the waters surface. The holographic silver shapes become vertical; lift, tilt and dance.
