Recent Landscape-based Paintings

The images in this section cover a range of approaches, all designed to give emphasis to varying aspects of the world we inhabit and our destructive relationship with it. At the centre of it all is my persistent preoccupation with nature's forces and the ever-changing environment that we now are precariously hanging on to.

We wonder at the universe,
the structure of the galaxies,
the distances
that crunch up time like dust.
We eat the fabric of the land
like scaled-down dinosaurs.
We drain the seas
to feed our appetites
whilst forests turn to sand.
Will we ever understand?
