    Statement for Artist 5

    I am an abstract artist who is primarily inspired by landscapes, especially the coast. Living in the small seaside town of Porthcawl, I am constantly surrounded by the beauty of the coast. This is something that has always interested me and has regularly appeared in my art work.

    I enjoy going down to local beaches with my sketch book to make rough pencil drawings, before returning to my studio to create paintings using acrylic on canvas. I rarely take photographs of the landscape because I feel it’s difficult to capture the experience in its entirety. I instead, enjoy creating artwork from memories based on how I felt and what I saw. I collect sand from the local beaches and create impasto style paintings, mixing the sand into the acrylic paint. This forms a realistic representation of the texture of the landscape. I then go on to add gold, rose gold or silver leaf to my paintings.

    This emphasizes the areas of the landscape that are highlighted by the sun or the moon. ‘Delight,’ ‘Sandcastles’and ‘Blossom’ represent Rest Bay Beach at different angles, times of the day and weather conditions. It interests me how different landscapes can look at different points in time.
