This landscape series comprises atmospheric images inspired by Bristol landmarks and places the artist visited across the South West.
Images of places you will recognise from everyday walks or weekend trips are filtered through emotions emerging from the artist’s encounters as well as reflection upon their nature, and brought before your eyes with a symphony of colours thrown into vibrant compositions.
In this series, each work is unique in its form and style. From quasi-realistic to semi-abstract; what links them together is not the form of expression, but the expression itself: the aim is to convey the essence of a place as seen and experienced by the artist, and to express the emotions behind every image.
Thinking about a place, one cannot avoid referring to its history. While being somewhere, we touch a stone, a wall or a tree – we touch history. We touch things that used to exist, things that still exist and those that ceased to exist. Traces of works and lives of people from the past can be seen through the works and lives of contemporary people. The ‘here and now’ of today was already experienced by someone, long ago, in a different context of life events that comprised the ‘here and now’ of yesterday.
There is a link between those people. The ‘Place’ is the space between myself, someone who lived here before, and someone who will come after me.
