Downpour 100 cm x 150 cm 2018

Downpour, a series of Flowers hints at a dark, melancholic state, expressed through the deep blacks of the monoprint. The interest in landscape, nature and flowers, is derived from observed and experienced sensations. Colour is excluded. These prints derive from an interest in working between a dichotomy of associations of black and white: symbolising good and bad, sin or holiness, and connotations of wealth, luxury or austerity, misfortune and magic.

Also inspired by the late Giverny flower paintings of Monet, the mark making approaches the grotesque with a certain delicacy within the curling, dancing and drooling lifts of white from black. The flowers hold a libidinal pull, unabashed in their show of emotions in the well-planned, yet slightly dishevelled English garden. These works are allegiant to symbolist poetry without apology.
