You Are Here
You are here follows a long legacy of the human form as part of the landscape. Mythology in cultures the world over give examples of ancestors, giants and even mythical animals who have been turned into mountains, stones, rivers and other natural forms.
More of us live in cities than ever before but we escape back to nature in huge numbers for holidays or a day out. Back in the landscape we feel free and more in touch with who we are. It is a deep-seated connection that is as strong as ever, in spite of the huge changes we have imposed on the landscape. We are not separate from it - how could we be? It is part of us, just as much as we are part of it. In these paintings I am trying to convey that feeling of connection, that essence of space and timelessness. This is part of the story of us, part of our connection to nature and the land we live in that reminds us that we are - always and forever - here.
