Reflection 2021

These more recent works are a continuation of the work I had in my last exhibition. Covid 19 has continued so therefore my work environment remained constant. Working from older drawings and familiar places I found myself reflecting on times gone by, my life, my process as a painter and inevitably the times we are living in. The pandemic and the environmental crisis have highlighted how fragile so many things we take for granted have become. 

Looking at the physical world reflected in water can be destabilizing; to be distract by the shifting reflection from the actual landscape. It feels like an appropriate visual metaphor for the times.
