The paintings in the 'Horizons' exhibition have been shaped, not as a natural representation of any particular place but in a way that seeks to describe a meditative sense of mystery, the unknown and the infinite that is created by the space and vastness of the ocean (or land), the sky and a seemingly immeasurable horizon.

Through simple compositions I've attempted to produce a meditative effect that invites deeper contemplation and evoke the possibility of isolation and solitude. For me, isolation and solitude can generate a space to find clarity and meaning.

I also draw inspiration from Gerhard Richter, an artist whose work I greatly admire. When asked in 1970 by Rolf Gunther Dienst why he painted landscapes, Richter replied, "I felt like painting something beautiful".

If I'm happy with any work I create then hopefully it can speak for itself. No two people will experience 'Horizons' in the same way and I invite viewers to draw their own conclusions whatever they may be.
