Mindful of the up and coming exhibition at the Hangar Gallery and the need to have artwork that locals would find of interest I am returning to collage. I have a lot of good prints to use as a basis for building up an image. I am also keen to use stitching in the pictures as interest in its own right, but also as texture and a way of ensuring coherency throughout the work.
Returning to projects based on East Lothian I am looking again at the detailed drawings and prints based on Garleton Hill. At the moment I am working on a painting based on the rhythms of the land. Colour is very important now, as is the illusion of movement and depth. I would also like to use stitch where appropriate to highlight movement.
