secrets of nature



Secrets of Nature #2

Oil on board,
52 x 39 cms, 20.5 x 15 inches

My artistic process is not straightforward, the subject comes from hours of drawing, observing and photographing flowers and in this painting, my model.  These observed drawings are then developed in my sketchbook to create a composition that conveys the message I am trying to communicate.  Many paintings take years to create because even when I know my composition the painting technique is slow, fine layers of oil are built up to create colours that glow.

This artwork is about humanity being a part of nature. Our impact upon the environment around us, directly affects us as a species. I have combined and camouflaged a person into the form of a sunflower. I want the flower to be seen initially, but as you look at the painting more closely you will see the human form within it. Is the man consuming nature or is nature consuming us? Will our damage to the environment ultimately cause humanity’s extinction?
