I have been away in France and made these new gouaches and drawings. They further explore images based on a tree linked to the Primavera painting. Made in the countryside they are improvisations that use motifs such as leaves, spirals, a distant rower. At this stage in making small works on paper I begin to speculate on different things and open up new spaces in the work, a free flow of visual thoughts to inhabit a potential place/space.They were not made from specific observations but were effected by the natural surroundings and the view over an orchard and the flat landscape that surrounded me.
The spirals relate to the idea that energy should be embodied in the work.
