"It is always with great eagerness and anticipation that I work towards a new show. This body of work further expands my exploration of colour and its relationship to an emotional response to the landscape. There are represented here a range of interpretations but all with an emphasis on manipulating and exaggerating colour to develop a successful composition. The local subject matter provides infinite source material — changing light, complex and untidy foliage and brush, and complex geological formations. These provide a structure on which I can play with colour and push the images into unlikely combinations that refer to the landscape but also create modern works that stand on their own."
