This exhibition is a natural response to living in an island nation, enveloped by coasts (or Coste in Italian). The very intersection of the sea, sky and land plays an essential role in our lifestyle and our very identity and nationhood.
The works in this Coste series have dynamic tension between energy and stillness. The minimal shapes and forms are reflective of the space that surrounds them – the expansiveness of water and sky rather than monumental landforms.
The compressed charcoal, inks, watercolours and pigments are combined to create moodiness and an atmosphere where you can almost smell the sea. Coste is a celebration of the unique spaces and places with which I have a special connection.
