Inspired by the shifting light and shapes of the Irish coastline. Water always fascinates me – it’s translucence and depth, the movement of ripples and tides and the magical transformation of pebbles, weeds and seaweed when submerged.
I moulded and sculpted canvas into organic shapes on the floor and manipulated paint and water within the canvas landscape, allowing colours to soak, bloom and fade as they diffused into the fibres. I allowed paint to evaporate slowly into tidelines of pigment. I repeated this process over several weeks to develop depth and create overlapping, translucent layers. It’s a slow meditative process. Forms are transitory, evolving and fragile.
