|Hull Sequence in Blue Acrylic on Canvas 85x100cm 2014|
|Stockton Industry (extract) Collage on Paper 45x100cm 2013|
SMOKE STEEL SALT is a collection of collages and paintings that reflect on the working industrial harbour of Newcastle. The compositions are loosely based on the landscape with figure ground relationships between stormy skies and turbulent ocean, fishing trawlers, smoke stacks and freight ships. Through a process of cutting and pasting collage material and building layered brush strokes my artistic practice has become part of the working city of Newcastle.
