“Across The Pond” literally and metaphorically.
My artistic journey which begins on the untamed shores of Scotland leads to the sublime
lakes and ponds in The Woodlands area. These contemporary abstract paintings conjure
up emotion through the exploration of experimental textures, collage, pattern and
elements of mixed media. Seabirds and waves merge and thrash together in an
energetic flurry, industrial horizons sit quietly in the background of the untamed beauty
of the coast. A pandemic emptiness, vast open spaces question who is on the other side,
these works are rendered in neutral palettes with glimmers of silver and gold, their lustrous surfaces representing hope and optimism.
The voyage calms as we reach the blissful lakes and ponds of The Woodlands, balmy
greens and chartreuse colors invite us to the inland waters, reflections, once again,
metaphorical and literal, examine innermost introversions with a sense of peace. A
world returns with a renewed optimism. Flocks of birds in flight symbolizing
relationships, friendships and communities stretch across the open skies, their feathers
floating on the surface of the lake, tokens of a new renaissance, reminding us to realize the moment, and revel in its gift.
We are small in the universe yet connected and integral to something much bigger.
