SKYSCAPES

"My eye is drawn to the way larger landscapes can be framed by the boundaries of our urban life. I'm constantly inspired by my own backyard, from the level of a single flower to the broader views beyond.

"These paintings emerged from a few nights of spectacular sunsets during the summer of 2016/17. Small studies of backyard silhouettes against opalescent clouds paved the way for larger, more detailed skyscapes."
