These works on canvas have evolved over several years to become what I call‘Portrait-Landscapes.’
The Process: I meet and yarn with the person who’s ‘Portrait-Landscape’ I am commissioned to paint. We simply talk about the person’s journeys through life, their turning points and memories. This conversation informs the iconography, the choice of colour and composition of their ‘Portrait-Landscape.’
The skill of 'deep listening' is pivotal to realising these works.
