After some years of doing figurative work I have returned to doing landscapes. I use no reference material or photographs in my work. I rely on memory to generate idea's during the process. I was influenced by the idea of psychogeography and the derive (aimless drifting through the city trying to memorize and record the emotions of a particular place). This approach frees me from copying and allows a more free reign of the imagination to happen. The work is "discovered" in the act of creation.
