Riverland

Riverland Project: From my front door in Lewes it takes me 7 minutes to reach the Downs, the hill that leads there winds steeply up Chalk Cliff where I stop to catch my breath and can see the panorama of the town below me. This walk is the start of my journey for the 'Riverland' project where I have balanced precariously on the cliff edge with my cameras in search of the relationship between the tidal River Ouse and the townscape it dissects. In mapping the course of the river in my painting I am looking for the connections between the natural and the manmade, the topography of the land and the history in buildings, in search of a quiet sense of place.
