Romancing the Landscape
“Romanticism” – An affirmation of faith in one’s innate power of creativity and a passionate concern with the relationship between humans and the natural environment.
The aim of this work is to embrace the landscape in its romantic glory and is a means of celebrating the natural world. The paintings are taken from glimpsed vignettes and hint at familiarity and symbolise certain places and times, past and present. They are a declaration of site and season and are a narrative of a personal and visual connection to the landscape.The intention of this work is to relate in paint landscapes that are seen and remembered and rather than the images being direct representations they are taken memories.
