Artist Statement:

My fascination with the countryside began when I moved to rural Leicestershire from inner London, which sparked a long appreciation of nature, particularly forests and woodlands. There is an intangible timeless feel, as if both life and death are at work. Forests are paradoxical; at times evoking feelings of being sheltered, at others of being hopelessly lost they can be a place of refuge or terror.

The collision of modernity as seen in man made forest planted with non-indigenous trees where nothing grows beneath, is in stark contrast, with places on the edge of these symmetrical plantings, where natural forestation, regains and reclaims its supremacy over mans interventions.

I wanted to give the impression of viewing the woods from the inside, as if being in the woods looking out towards the light and space outside.

The artist that inspired me is Caspar David Friedrich, for his romanticism and Monet for his use of paint and surface, and more recently Anselm Kieffer, and Peter Doig.
