Postcard Three, Acrylic on calico, 72 x 50cm, 2021

Image description: Painting on a shelf, leant against the wall, with some abstract marks on the wall behind it. The painting is split horizontally, with a third above the split and two thirds below. The top third is painted blue, with the bottom section a purple/brown colour. In the bottom corners, there are lime green decorative elements, painted in a graphic way with crisp edges.

I love the landscape and the world around us and enjoy painting these strange, remembered or in between spaces in the landscape. Devoid of people, they are quiet and painted in a way that I hope suggests a sort of fleeting moment or memory. The horizon is something I have been specifically drawn to this year, with horizontal lines and empty spaces featuring heavily in my work.
