They tell me you're an historic landmark.
They warn me things will never be the same.
Today, we'll float underneath you,
Or sit upon your shore and think;
Tonight, we might light candles and dance with you again,
Just like you'll always be here.
Just like you've always been.
These Bridges & Fences are my exploration into the interplay of the objects we've built with the natural world that holds them.
Here, Nature is depicted by loosely-applied, textural, riotous colour. The colour is the first thing: it arrests the attention and makes us want to linger. But the texture is the other thing: it requires that a lot of work be put into painting anything of value atop it. I really had to watch my step.
