Description
Description
As a child, one of my most prized possessions was a small pot of brilliant blue pigment. It was like a jewel. To me that pot held not only a brilliantly coloured dust, so easily spilt or lost in a gust of wind, but echoes of an entire magical, exotic world that captivated and enchanted me. My childhood was divided between city and country- that pot of pigment traveled with me. We spent the weeks in London for school and work and every weekend, at a cottage in a small village in East Anglia. Two doors down lived a family of 4 children. I was an only child but every weekend I became the honourary tag along 5th child (though generally I felt rather more like a third wheel). Early Saturday morning I would stumble up the garden and along the ‘secret pathway’ linking our garden to theirs and a weekend of roaming and exploring would begin. We’d travel miles on our bikes, climb high into oak trees, swim in the river in summer, feed carrots to the old donkey that was always waiting at the gate. It was a privileged childhood, though it lasted well into my teens, I reminded the outsider. We always got in the car and left when the weekend was over and I would return to dreaming. There’s that fleeting moment before sleep when your mind wanders and drifts- when everything becomes perfectly clear; vivid, still and silent. Reality and imagination weave together to make new worlds, worlds that are both familiar and strange, comforting and sinister. Echoes of memories are heard and the day’s long shadows are cast. Those memories, like repeatedly retold tales, distort and become exaggerated over time. Colours become more vivid, sounds brighter, smells sweeter. Unexpected worlds emerge. Making a number of paintings at once- resolutions for one painting might be found in another, finished paintings idealized, distant versions of where things began.
