Feeling Inspired
May 07, 2023

I remember walking through a field of rapeseed, in Wales, taller than myself. It seemed to go on forever, at least a mile.
This is part of the same walk we have done many times from Cardigan to Gwbert. For the next large image I intend to recreate some of the memories, colours and emotions from this part of the walk.

The Other day I came across a book by Philip Guston, “I Paint What I Want to See”,  which, although I only read a small snippet of it I found really inspiring. This led me to look at his other ink drawings and Lithographs by Guston.

Below are some recent mark making experiments including some pieces on fabrics. I am enjoying the play element of mark making, trying out materials, colours, tools and substrates.

    I visited the Artcore gallery today, and was moved by the work I saw there, some very inspired by natural world, featuring g series of abstract images, with earthy browns, contrasting with vivid sky blues. These works were by Nicki someone. Sorry I can’t recall their second name. The works were beautifully curated within the gallery space. There were some much larger pieces by the same artist, exhibited as large tubes, standing on the floor. These included more urban-type patterns. Beautiful work in the gallery today.
