Skyscapes: A Piece of Sky
An investigation in drawings and oil sketches
The series of land and sky oil sketches are about the fragmentation of the landscape.
It is an investigation of the natural world around us as sight bites, caught in glimpses, seen in passing.
As over industrialised digital aware citizens of a fast moving modern society we dismiss the natural world to digestible pieces that fit in and around urbanized life.
The beauty and power of the sky and land are too easily dismissed with our eyes cast down towards our immediate and over powering everyday world.
When the fury and unpredictable natural world does intrude we once more are brought back to the realisation that "the other" is the planet upon which we are dependent.
