These pieces have much in common with landscape, rural and urban.
I've called them Journeys.
They are not abstract images. They resonate with half remembered images of Sheffield, the Peak District, Cornwall, motorway journeys, walks in the sun, the sky through the attic window, bike rides, cracks in the pavement...
Using collaged fragments and painted gestures (including marks and gestures on both sides of the glass with pieces using pre-existing frames), and a working framework of
construct / deconstruct / reconstruct
These pieces are 'research' drawings - partner pieces to the current large drawings and paintings.
Small in scale, from 10cm X 10cm up to 70cm X 70cm.
