In researching I found the work of Land Artist Robert Smithson inspring along with that of John Piper, the war artist and more contempraryDan Dempster, Tony Reason and Rosamond Purcell. The latter three all either use the power of nature in order to arrive at their work or use discarded, dead items to make quite beautiful pieces.
These images are derived from a tumble-down shed in Fort William. In keeping with the fact that I am attempting to depict features that have been derived over time, my work also has taken time. Layers of paint scraped back and worked over until a certain surface is arrived at. Colour relationships were borrowed from images I have collected over some time.
