My practice is directed by the cyclical change of the English seasons, from equinox to equinox. Each tiny fluctuation in the landscape, from wildlife, food, to quality of light informs the content of my work. England is a porous land of seeping, oozing layers, where many stories and temporalities can overlap, coexist and touch, all in one place; Where green-hooded things dance every May Day and where I still salute one lone magpie for sorrow. My paintings peer between these intertwined layers of England’s folklore, history, landscape and custom, searching for a way to a strange new home, where this murky mess of weird narratives can intertwine and live together. By teasing this obscured knowledge into the present, I hope to enchant the viewer into a sense of curiosity about this land.
