a day in the studio, going over images from journals (top 2) and photos of the ocean pool (next 3) The first image is not directly inspired by this pool, but its fluidity and layering comes very much from that work and time. The link between image 2 & 3 is for me quite strong. Although 2 is very abstracted and stylised perhaps...it was part of a long series of work where i was obsessed with the ways that pool water and light plays with ones vision. My journals are filled with many, many interpretations of this illusive phenomena. These 3 photos viewed up large are so lush and so immensely appealing to me ...they, and images like them, have spawned a lot of ideas and paintings.
