I paint about the feelings I experience when in the landscape. I have long appreciated the quote by John Constable: “All paintings are about feelings”.
In a curious way my feelings about a landscape do not feel entirely personal, more like a collective experience of being a fleeting, sentient creature in this landscape. These feelings of connection are spiked with a vertiginous sense of the fragility and insignificance of our existence. My paintings are a memento mori and a celebration of our unlikely existence.
