Torii Series 2015
Although I had made a few paintings between 2012 and 2015. These paintings, all made on square canvases, were the first series I attempted since the Mountain series of 2009. Intended as both an exploration of acrylics, as I had mainly used oil paint previously, and of the surroudings to a singular motif. The Torii series also enabled the use of a simple structure, made from branchwood in my garden as a doorway to represent a multiplicity of ideas.
