When I starting working on this painting in January 2020, it was grey and cold.  I went for walks every day with no music.  Those walks I suppose were my daily meditation.  One day, I noticed bright pink petals and dark green leaves that had fallen onto a pavement.  They remained there undisturbed with more lush petals falling on top.  Every day, their pop of colour drew me in. Every day they decayed a little more. There was something about their fragile and transient beauty that moved me and reminded me of childhood memories of trying to making 'perfume' by bottling cherry blossom petals. 

Finding the right title for a painting usually takes me several days of thinking and writing but this title came to me on a walk, fully formed, like a perfect miniature poem.

I paint intuitively with acrylic, oil, cold wax and mixed media, building up layers of paint over many months. The process of adding layers of different colours and marks, then excavating, scraping and dissolving them is akin to the process of archaeology in reverse.  It echoes how land is laid down over time, eroded, weathered and destroyed, continuously and gradually shifting and changing.    

Optional contemporary white frame to fit this painting.  Framing is optional and a matter of personal preference.  Please allow 1-2 weeks for framing.

As I paint, I explore both the internal and external landscape: the territories of my dreams, memories and our collective history of the interconnection of place and memory.   I paint intuitively with acrylic, oil, cold wax and mixed media, building up layers of paint over many months. The process of adding layers of different colours and marks, then excavating, scraping and dissolving them is like archaeology in reverse.  It echoes how land is laid down over time, eroded, weathered and destroyed, continuously and gradually shifting and changing.
