“Fear of falling” from the River meets sea series.
Gone fishin' with Wilf' and consequently the River meets sea series, both reference the Estuary in Exmouth, Devon, where the Artist, as a child, fished, and night fished with her father, often climbing down very steep cliffs. In this series the memories fuel an emotional catalyst for her to explore her experiences and the line between abstraction and scenic recognition during the painting process.
Although her work is autobiographical, she would like it to evoke an atmosphere which may in turn elicit personal emotional responses for the viewers own sense of "place," physical or emotional.
Signed and dated on the side of the canvas the painting is ready to hang. The canvas is deep edged which shows signs of the working process to the canvas side.
