Gallery 2

In my landscape paintings, I explore themes of solitude, escape, survival and childhood games of losing oneself in wild and free places and worlds. Focusing on the overlooked areas of the North East of Scotland and its flora, I play with the effects of light and expose its transcendental colours.
I am endlessly fascinated by the shapes of trees and the patterns that are created when the straight lines of farmland cut into fluid undulating surfaces, our continual attempts to manage and make order of the chaotic wilderness and the wild beauty that always creeps back in around the edges. I try to depict the terrifying loneliness of remote abandoned and derelict buildings and natures swift reclamation of our marks on the land.
