This is an installation view of one wall of paintings from my 'Sense Of Place' solo show running throughout March and April 2007 at Mulberry Art Studios in the heart of Lancaster,Pennsylvania.
The painting above , 'Penryn Lakes Farm I ' (oil on canvas 4x4feet) was one of the first paintings I made after arriving here from England in the Summer of 2006. It was intended to be an initial sketch and light study but it captured the essence of my feelings at the time so it remained in this state.
This painting entitled 'Ghost in the Machine...or Twins' was made in the early hours of the morning when I was producing work at a prolific rate.....this intensity of workrate has been peaking on a regular monthly basis.

'Into The Fall I ' (oil on canvas 3x4.5feet)
'Penryn Lakes Farm II'(Oils and Emulsion on Canvas 6x6feet)....with an obvious reference to American Abstract Expressionism and a contemporary homage to Jackson Pollock.
'O.ut Of The Fall II' (Oils,Aerosol and Emulsions on Canvas 4x4feet).....a celebration of human physicality and nature hand in hand

This is one of a series of four(3x4feet oil on board painting) entitled 'Sense Of Place'
They were produced in response to discussions we had at Airy Hill Artists meetings on Wednesday nights at the house....I attempted to take Pennsylvanian agricultural imagery and 'forge' it with the industrial images I was surrounded by as a child growing up in the industrial heartland of South Leeds ,back in England.
'Blue Blades Of Light' (oil on canvas 6x6feet)....I feel a sense of spirituality in this work and it was produced specificaly for my first solo show in the States,at Mulberry Art Studios in Lancaster...thank you April.
