CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

"TRACING CONTOURS" -Brewery Arts Centre, Warehouse Cafe, Kendal, in association with Kendal Mountain Festival 9th November to 13th January.

The work in “Tracing Contours” is a collection of the various landscapes I walked through and explored between June and October 2018, the months leading up to the exhibition. Walking is central to my art practice; it builds a strong connection with the landscape I’m travelling in, enabling me to feel the energy and atmosphere of a place.I feel a distinct affinity for remote and wild landscapes especially where mountains and bodies of water come together. I usually walk alone so my whole attention can be devoted to my surroundings and I’ve come to think of the walks as a form of circumambulation. I choose paths that take me around the mountain and through passes, routes that let me see a mountain’s shape from a distance and from various directions. The paintings are a compression of the moments and hours spent there. Most of the works made for “Tracing Contours” are painted on old OS maps. I enjoy the challenge of working with the colour, texture and marks that come with use and age. The maps also bring another connection to the place, perhaps having been carried there by someone and used to navigate many years ago.There are 17 paintings in the collection, some from Scotland and others from the Lake District. There are more that I am still carrying in my mind that I hope to add to the collection over the exhibition's run.....  I am delighted the exhibition came about in association with the Kendal Mountain Festival enabling me to contribute to the Mountain Literature Festivals aim of connecting people,places,nature and art.
