Camus' Pond

10 monthly payments of £24.50 0% APR
Medium: Oil pastel and pencil on paper. My technique is both aggressive and delicate in execution. The multi-layering of oil pastel and pencil creates depth and attempts to emulate the marks and surfaces achieved in materials like paint, clay and plaster. My images might seem more like dioramas, scenes waiting for further content or perhaps long forgotten stage sets. Narrative is, essentially and deliberately, misleading and meaning is embedded as much in the objects and scenes as in the execution of the work. 'Camus' Pond' creates a sense of innocence with its child-like images of dolls shoes and simple house form. The path is quite menacing as it transforms into a dark pond and a shadowy figure beneath draws a connection to the title of the work. It was Camus who suggested what the ultimate philosophical question should be! The shoes are, jokingly, size 11. Try Googling 'why do I keep seeing 11 11'.

About the Artist

I have exhibited around the UK, in France, Holland and USA. I am excited to be returning to my work after a period where life choices and family commitments have meant less time was available to develop my artwork at the level I so desired. I return with a maturity and seriousness of subject ...
