The Origin and Limit

Arteles Creative Center

– 594 x 420mm; Oil, Pastel & Charcoal on Paper

Swearing off the ideal picturesque of traditional landscape portrayal, The Origin and Limit presents an ecstatic vision of a scene — a compression of a mental image to a narrow compositional window, hinting at an expanse beyond the bounds of the work.

With a combination of unconventional techniques from dendritic mono-printing to dry mark-making through wet media, the enduring motifs of nature painting are subverted: a cave as a shamanic portal; a fulgurous sky; a frozen woodland floor interrupted erratically; an impervious brush through which light warps colour and form. In this visual shorthand, the scene looms closer in its abstraction, describing a nature no longer familiar.

Studio project completed as part of Arteles Creative Center Residency Program for February 2017 Finland (theme: Silence, Awareness, Existence)
