Over the last few months, whilst locked out of my studio, forced limitations gave me a really lovely and great opportunity to try and use water-based mediums within both my prints and constructions. The wood constructions on view have that combination of landscapes both seen and imagined. My work continues to harness the poetic logic of the landscapes around us. There is, I hope, a formality or iconography to these works – structured not unlike verse or music – both being important influences and reference points. The matt quality to the works have come about because of the use of gouache as a medium to colour them with. It soaks into the wood rather than just sitting on the surface.
