Tuesday 19th May 2020Empty Chair, Madeira

This painting of an empty chair in an abandoned dwelling in Madeira is paired, in a sense, with my earlier empty chair painting of a chair in an old house at Peakside, near Frosterly.
 
 
In each case, the chair looks as if a person just stood up and walked away from it, creating a mystery as to why the house was abandoned. I never change anything in the houses I paint and leave it to the person looking at the painting to fill in the gaps if they wish to, and to imagine the people who lived there.

Thursday 13th February 2020Madeira

‘Madeira’ is the result of my first visit to the island with my partner, Alison, in 2018. It’s an extraordinary island. Just 14 x 70 miles in size, it’s packed with zones of different terrains. The light is clean and bright and everything from bananas to bougainvillea grows in the fertile land.‬
