Night Sea (Study)

Night Sea (Study) relates to an ongoing series of paintings, ‘Notes on The Sea’. Consisting of twenty four minimal photorealist paintings (shown in sets of 12) the works depict calm, fog-veiled seascapes as polarities of night and day. In this piece┬áthe archetypal romantic image enters into a contradiction with itself as it becomes part of a system. Playing with notions of duration, mathematic abstraction, and the possibility of painting a beautiful landscape, the works are an attempt to rationalize the epitomised romantic landscape through a meditative practice which plays with various senses of rhythm.
