Pulsing Through Dark

Winter 2020/21 has heralded a darker phase to my work – a clear contrast to the sunny brights of the preceding summer and autumn. My art has taken a more reflective and personal – indeed visceral – turn. I’m creating a largely monochrome set – some of which have crimson pulsing through them.  I’m enjoying the direction this solitary time is taking me in and am hoping the artworks will be on show in the coming months. Detail from two of the works is shown below:

Penwith Associates Show

I’m delighted to have Sanctuary 1 selected for the Penwith Gallery’s Winter Associates Exhibition. I helped to set up the show and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Sanctuary 1 is from my recent Vessels series inspired by boatworks in St Ives Harbour. The artworks meld the natural and man-made landscapes I encountered on my daily walks at that quiet, strange time in lockdown 2020. They reflect what remains of the fishing industry and the almost eerie sense of stillness and calm that descended upon St Ives. This one is the first entitled Sanctuary and is an abstraction of weathered boats in the Harbour.  By the time I painted this, the town had filled up with tourists over the summer and was just starting to empty again as the second wave of Covid-19 began to strike. St Ives was becoming my sanctuary again. It is acrylics and mixed media on canvas board, mounted and framed in white frame, 60cm x 60cm (image is 40cm x 40cm) – £500 The show runs from 7th November 2020 – 9th January 2021
