Seascapes 2013 – 2019
I see my seascapes as extensions of the landscapes. I am concerned with many of the same principles and techniques, like deep space perspectives, variegated surface quality and atmospheric lighting and colour. Several of these compositions have ships as their focal points. They are seen as small and vulnerable within the environment that surrounds them. I want these vessels to feel subsumed by the beautiful, but at the same time threatening atmospheres they are part of. Most recently I have explored optical phenomena, such as minor and major mirages and Fata Morgana in some of my compositions. They create a feeling of disorientation and a questioning of what is real and what is an illusion.
