As if to Nothing

A body of work created in response to an extended trip to the Arctic Circle in Northern Norway during winter.  The works reflect the desolate, monochromatic landscapes, yet are filled with subtle details and flashes of colour. They are abstract, mixed media works using a combination of acrylic paint, tissue paper, thread and stitch.

Quietness, reduction, stillness, silence. I want the viewer to be engaged yet feel rested when looking at the works.
