Painting ideas and progress, land/sea/body

This new work is an exploration of our connections and transient nature on the land. I am creating figurative landscapes where body meets earth and the distinction is very surreal. these at the moment are just test pieces and sketchbook plans for much bigger work, that will be installation based objects of land, film, painting and space. With ecology and the planet being on everyones mind at the moment I felt the need to show how we are connected and how cause and effect play a big role in how we live. Our skin is our biggest organ and if we treat it badly the scars show, this is the same for the land.
