secrets of nature

My home and studio are based in a rural area of the UK, and as an artist I work in my studio daily or in my garden or the walking the local Sussex landscape.  This oil painting, called “Undergrowth” was inspired by my fascination of the minute ecosystem of dramas hidden between the tiny blades of grass beneath our feet. I wanted to create an enclosed feeling of tangled grass and weeds to make the viewer feel as though they are a tiny insect walking amongst it. It is part of the ‘Secrets of Nature’ series which is about the current environmental crisis that mankind face. I believe if the human race considered themselves a part of nature and the ecosystem, they would take better care of it, because homo sapiens is a species like any other and also very vulnerable to climate change.

Within this painting are some corncockles, which have had their sepals replaced with human hands. It is a highly textured painting because there is more to nature than what we see on the surface, which we tend to take for granted, therefore there are hidden layers to the picture. If you would like to know more about this painting, you can read it in my blog here.
