These works are anchored in a reverence of the ever-changing atmospheric effects of water, sea and sky, the pull of the tides by the moon, and light, shape and forms affected by the weather and seasons. The work implies the nostalgia of a memory, a ‘reverie’ that elevates us above and into the landscape, sensing hope in the fragility of the luminous, physical and momentary. I explore nuance in blues and the contrasting pinpoints of lunar light reflecting on both water and clouds in the ‘nightscape’ without the noise of daylight. This is a theme that I have returned to often in my practice.
“The next time you stand on the beach at night, watching the moon’s bright path across the water, and conscious of the moon-drawn tides, remember that the moon itself may have been born of a great tidal wave of earthly substance torn off into space.”
