Statement

 

 Since moving to Norfolk in 1997 I have been painting landscapes.  A lot of my work is small in scale, because I paint directly in the landscape. The pictorial content of my work is not only a direct response to a purely visual stimulus: I search for imagery that will operate on more than one level.  Whilst the paintings are a direct observed testament of a specific and actual time they are also the result of  layering meaning,so that they are as much about what the eye can not percieve as they are about the observed world. My strongest influences have been painters in the northern romantic tradition,  Casper David Friedrich  said " the painter should not solely paint what he sees, but also what he sees in himself.  If he does not see anthing in himself, then he should give up painting what he sees.
