farmscape painting

One of my farmscapes, farmed and now framed…


[farmscape I, mixed media on canvas, 60cm x 120cm]

There is a reference to landscape in colour and format, a modulation of stripes hint at the structures of agriculture – a farm (buildings) and its landscape (fields) distilled into one work, when viewed in both the horizontal and the vertical… here are a couple of images showing some textural surface details…

This prompted me to sift through a few of my journal’s farmyard and field photographs, to illustrate further…

and the striations live on, long after the painting has ceased… I have been keeping all of the masking tape discards…
