Communication in landscape from early man to modern society, stone circles to radio transmitters.

 

These new paintings explore how our faith in science and technology has overcome natural obstacles, represented by structures of communication and their expression in the landscape and also as an emblem for society's need to share knowledge. The paintings evoke the historical, elemental and natural aspects of Cornwall, with the use of a neutral palette of slate grey and ochres - the predominant colours of winter on the moors, which once was the place where our early ancestors communed with nature and the stars.
