The intent viewer can become viscerally involved in a reality where the everyday merges with the beyond. Lines, like guides, skip across the surface, or suggest the presence of an intervening membrane. The starting point is often place and the play of light. It is hoped that the viewer will experience a moment of belonging, of being there. Places ‘at the edge’ are a recurring motif, such as Somerset with its high skies, and definite horizon or the window ledge where the light from outside meets that of the inside. In both cases, there is a meeting of two realities, physical and psychological. A sense of immediacy is central to the work.
