2016 - Flohs

Artist statement: The ‘Flohs’ (Olde English for ‘Floes’) of Lake Michigan series was begun in 2015 following a visit to Chicago, Illinois, in the early spring. Resulting work reflected my experience of seeing this phenomenon – curious shapes, fascinating, rich depths of the partially frozen water and dazzling sunlight striking unexpectedly in the far distance. This year has seen a total rework of the earlier paintings which stemmed from written notes, a few scant sketches, drawings on newsprint and my imagination.
