Im Abendlicht

A series of 26 small, abstract, mixed-media paintings on acid-fee card, made in the studio but inspired by the hour of twilight and its effect on water. Immeadiately following the sunset behind San Giorgio in Venice, the surface of the water in St Mark’s Basin is often a dazzling icy blue, before turning orange then inky black. Sometimes there’s an illusion, just as the sun hits the horizon, that the distant islands levitate clear of the water and float like mystical vignettes in the air. A magical hour, be the waters still or turbulent; one that still stops me in my tacks on certain evenings.
