I am an Artist who lives and works in London. My work investigates how nature and the built-up environment can co-exist, where urbanity encroaches on nature or more recently vice versa.
Pine is from a series of paintings titled Into the Woods which combines direct observations with memories of the natural world. During the pandemic I stayed at my home on a normally busy arterial Road in the East End. As the hum of the traffic dissipated, I began to notice subtle changes in the environment, foliage appearing among concrete, bird song, the estate gardens blanketed with wildflowers. I took daily walks which increasingly drew me to patches of nature in parks and edge lands. Lockdown provoked a longing for the natural world and in the painting, traces of urbanity are temporarily painted out.
