Materials used in these collage compositions consist of handmade paper, failed viscosity prints, and their ghosts and a piece of frottage in Point Roadknight Littoral 2. Once again I have ransacked my remnant department and the images almost arranged themselves, I think because of the way I am immersed in this coastal area and its atmosphere.
At dawn and pre dawn I often wait for low tide, no wind and some cloud before I capture the transient nature of different elements such as the juxtaposition of water and sun, sand and reflections, rock face reflected in rock pools.
The photograph informs my work (as well as taking frottage) in a round about way that seems to make a slowly developing mental pattern that over time distills into an image/s.

Its so interesting just letting ideas fester over time, remembered images, photos or sketches, discarded prints all slowly sink in and new images gradually emerge from the broth, often quite unlike what you are expecting. The ‘paintings’ are beautiful, evocative of the coast, and the photos have a timeless quality. I can see these will be inspiring new work.
Thank you. You are right it is about abandoning expectation-I try to free up but sometimes find myself getting too prescriptive.
Golly, this should inspire anyone to live by the sea
