Abstract Landscapes - Beauty in the Ordinary:

A series of abstract landscapes based on the shapes and colours hidden in the bark of trees and the cracks and crevices in rocks and cliff faces


We travel.  Got to see the world.  The seven wonders - grand panoramas – mountains – forests – lakes – big cities – skyscrapers – towers – castles.  
Look at the big picture
Impress our friends.

Ignore -
the boring drab grey-brown cliffs
the common grey-green tree trunk at the bottom of the garden
the decaying, rotting, derelict buildings, abandoned cars,  discarded machinery

BUT – what if we look closer

The grey brown cliffs – broken, fractured sheets of Cornish slate.  Exquisite, subtle earth colours – ochres, yellows, browns, slate blues, white flecks.......  Closer still, see the patterns, pictures, hidden landscapes

Look into the trees – They give shelter from wind and rain, they glisten in the wet.  Flat, drab and dull are the surfaces of the tree trunks from a distance.  But, approach them and see the colours – reds, blues, greens and pinks – and such texture – deep cracks, large flakes – ravines, hills and plateaus to the insects.  Even closer – more hidden landscapes – sky, hills and sea

The decay, the rot, the rust – throw it away, forget it, ignore it. Once it was pristine, faultless, glossy
now it’s
full of holes, blistered
full of natural colour -  rust reds, oranges, blacks
full of patterns and textures


LOOK CLOSE AND SEE
BEAUTY IN THE ORDINARY
