"For years I have been in love with chiaroscuro and the mythological magic of life. In these works, however, indian red, ochre and french ultramarine have appeared in my palette, being evocative of my love of and attachment to the earth. I draw and paint, with the attitude of Zen, the landscapes and beasts from my imagination. This series of works is inspired by my travels. Flying in particular gives me a different way of seeing life on earth. The layers of different coloured air becoming clearer as we cut through them, soaring higher. The smooth pale brown countryside, punctuated by small patches of brown green forest, seems vacant of life. Then the infinite seas pass under my vessels wing, changing colour in indefinite transition - indigo, blue-green, brown and we approach land again. I sense Nemesis watching!"
