Portfolios > Luminaire (2022)

Somewhere between Tall Tales and True Stories, these recent paintings explore real places, drawn in my sketchbooks or sometimes from photographs. They are then reimagined in the studio as night scenes lit from some mysterious source, often from somewhere in the foreground as if by the gaze of the viewer. The light transforms the landscape into a kind of stage set, still and silent before any drama unfolds.
