A landscape “ does not exist as a landscape, since it’s appearance changes … but lives
according to it’s surroundings, by air and light, which constantly change “ – Claude Monet.
All compositions are made up of lines, shapes, tones, textures and colours. Sometimes
lines act as boundaries which contain the other elements. They can also be submerged
and barely visible acting as a vague skeleton on which the other elements hang or drift
loosely. In some areas the colours dominate, occasionally overlapping or overwhelming
each other. Sometimes clearly defined shapes occur but some shapes are distorted, lost
or submerged by the other elements.
I like to play with all these elements where each can dominate or disintegrate. By studying
small, intimate corners of the landscape I can observe the constantly shifting shapes,
tones and colours which appear, disappear and reappear. Light changes everything.
