• New Series: Fractured Light

"Abstract art has shown that the qualities of line and shape, proportion and colour convey meaning directly without the use of words or pictorial representation. Drawn lines and marks can be expressive without any association with a representational image." Abstract Impressionism, these words, for all they can represent, feel like a good description for  where my practice is currently heading. This current body of work, Fractured Light, is exploring light and reflection, billowing clouds, a fleeting glimpse of dappled light, a dissolving reflection of the sea, memories of the elementary with a hint of the digital. A visual language, deriving from Cy Twombly and his predecessor Claude Monet, his love of light and motion. A new technique has been developed over the last two years, that represents a memory, as opposed to a literal interpretation of reality. It is definitely in keeping w ...

  • Lucent Memory

  It has been a busy few months, here is the latest. First major commission is finished and installed. What a tremendous feeling it is to create a piece for someone. While it took some time to get together a preliminary image, once that happened it all fell into place. Following on with my body of work, exploring coalescence as my theme, the sky and water as the subject and the romantic notion of these two as  metaphor. ...

From Wikipedia "In the visual arts, style is a "...distinctive manner which permits the grouping of works into related categories."[1] or "...any distinctive, and therefore recognizable, way in which an act is performed or an artifact made or ought to be performed and made."[2] It refers to the visual appearance of a work of art that relates it to other works by the same artist or one from the same period, training, location, "school",art movement or archaeological culture: "The notion of style has long been the art historian's principal mode of classifying works of art. By style he selects and shapes the history of art". With a background in illustration and digital painting for some twenty years, over the past four years I've dedicated my art practice to the medium of oil paint and a series that explores the relationship between water and sky.

  • All the trees shivering in a naked row

Winters Mossy Oaks, Searching for the Sun. On holidays, away from the oil paint and easel, it's time to crack out the lead pencil. There is something very immediate and raw about the pencil, it's line, it's rambling like a series of thoughts on paper. The Adelaide Hills in winter are abundant with old mossy green naked Oaks, these bright, crisp winter days are perfect for exploring. "...when the sun turns traitor cold and all the trees are shivering in a naked row..." Ode to Joni Mitchell. Your beautiful words were rolling around in my head in the hills today. Sterling was bright, crisp and full of autumn leaves. #jonimitchell #30minsketch #pencil #belindagriffiths #silverbirchtree #treesketch   ...
