THE REAL AND THE FUGITIVE
These works act as landmarks through a terrain which is at once recognisable and elusive. The depicted geography is familiar and yet there is a suggestion that the main theme is a place outside the pictures frame. The glowing mists, the dark corners and the physical trace of the brushstrokes are all guiding the viewer past the conspicuous and into the unseen.
That unseen landscape will not be clearly defined - or inhabited, yet it is the one we know in our bodies. It tells us we are part of a deep continuum. Constantly homesick for that place, we instinctively move towards it but it always just out of reach. It is a fugitive.
