'On the Edge of Darkness' has grown out of my fascination with the raw and vast landscapes of Iceland. Since visiting this country in 2015, I have been studying the works of Georg Guðni and Jóhannes Kjarval. Guðni’s work is haunting and darkly beautiful; Kjarval is instinctively Icelandic. Together, they have inspired me to combine the landscape of Iceland with my local landscape of Dartmoor, which is also vast, raw and deeply mysterious. These paintings are for you to be lured into – and not to fear the darkness! - Í annan heim.
The darkness of emotions fills my heart, but something lures me in and I feel safe in this dark solitude. I need to explore this negative space. We belong; we are one...
