Back in the Woods...
oil on canvas/20" x 16"/May 2017
Following the brief return to the two most-recent white pears compositions, whilst simultaneously percolating the idea, this painting sees a continuation of the autumn/winter ‘woodscapes’ project, this time on a smaller scale than the previous ‘cinematic’ canvases that originally explored the subject matter and more physical painting technique, the impetus provided by a request from the Gresford and District Community Library for a donation to their upcoming (8th July) fund-raising Summer Fair auction.
As with the larger canvases, the emphasis is again on the materiality of the paint used to convey the embodied experience of being present within the woods and the (over-)abundance of information one is subjected to.
