wooden log

I wanted to continue looking at the natural lines and curves in nature so took a branch from a tree and saw it into section to make it easier to use as a stamp/print.

I was able to experiment in creating different lines while using the circumference of the branch and acrylic paint. Depending on how hard I pressed, moved or twisted the wood, alteredthe image I was creating. My favourite ones were the times that I have twisted the wood in the same spot to give a smooth movement to the image, as nature is always growing and moving.  I want to look further into how I can use natural textures to create pieces of work.

I am a landscape painter who enjoys spending free time exploring and wandering through natural landscapes, understanding that the space I occupy in this world is tiny and temporary. The aim of my paintings is to evoke the same sense of wonder in the viewer that I experience while on my travels and to ignite the realisation that compared to our surroundings, we are miniscule and blend in, we are not above, nor do we have any higher importance than any other being or thing on this planet. My large oil paintings are designed to be displayed outdoors after being inspired by Katherine Grosse in the Venice Biennale, making them appear small in their surroundings, much like the people in them and the people viewing them. However, my zines and watercolours require more attention, showing that even smaller details contain whole worlds and landscapes of their own. Depending on our own experiences we see the prints differently. The text along with the images encourage the viewer to see the same landscape I see.
