61 x 61 x 2 cm (Unframed with Painted Edges)
Oil on Canvas
One of a series from my current work exploring spaces, landscapes and structures—man-made or organic, and the interplay of one against and within the other.
Man has stamped his boots on the earth, built monumental engineering and architecture, constructed environments, and populated landscapes, later discarding those creations and moving on when use has been fulfilled.
The story of those left-behind places is frequently an interesting one—whether it’s a story of decay and return to the earth, or one of life breathed back and a renewed purpose given.
I want the shapes I describe to be something both intangible yet instantly recognisable—solid objects, the space in between them, or an atmosphere created by light, shade and colour.
“It’s unusual to have a sense of 3 dimensions when inside in a building, and I wanted to show this sense of space, not just through the interior, with its void to the floor below, but also considering the overall relationship between inside and outside.
I wanted to show the contrast between the structure and the sky and trees—seen through the glass panes of the windows and northern lights—casting colours and shadows into the space.
This sense of infinity, reaching out beyond the boundaries of the structure, resonates with feeling the passage of time and the building’s history. Its huge volume once filled with clattering looms and busy industry will only remain empty for a limited time before being given a new purpose as artist’s studios.”
