Motivated by the memory and feeling from painting live in the landscape. The Nova paintings attempt to try and sum up the impression of a place in the mind’s eye. A bit like a psychiatrist’s inky doodles on his or her notepad or the clairvoyant’s tea leaves in a cup - For me they are a telescopic, microscopic and kaleidoscopic perspective exploring our relationship with nature and wilderness in the context of urgent and changing times. They are like planets or moons; at the same time they represent microbiological events such as the infection of a cell by a Nova virus and the consequential effects.

As well as impressions of familiar landscape they are views though a microscope and in to space – to the frontiers of our war with nature.
