Ongoing Work 2021

2021 began with the completion of a set of 12 paintings worked on over the winter months during Covid lockdown. Collectively titled “View from a Train”, each painting in the series is a reflection on a specific time and place and is based on scribbles in notebooks and memories of particular rail journeys. Seeing a landscape unfolding from the detachment of a moving train seems to emphasise its horizontality while the fleeting shifts in focus between foreground and distance heighten a sense of personal transience.

The ten small ‘Notebook” paintings were made during January – they mimic the jotting down of ideas and observations that get collected and stored in notebooks.
