Inspired by the space and light unique to Cornwall, this Moment shows a shift within the series away from using St Ives as the specific inspiration. The three arches from the harbour wall continue to connect the paintings, as does the colour palette, but the ideas and scenes suggested start to move into something imagined. I wanted to play with the idea of spaciousness within a minimal level of context.
The series is called Moments because it’s about about capturing the essence of a momentary experience – an impression expressed in colour and shape to create semi abstract scape.
