Sika Encounter
View larger image

Sika Encounter owes much to one of the great influences in my art career - the work of John Singer Sargent.

His work The Hermit (Il Solitario) showed how a subject relates to its environment. Sargent explores the unity between human, animal and landscape and the play of light, the texture, the gesture of paint. I love the way Sargent used tone to emphasize or reduce the impact of a line, how he limited the range of colours to unify the different elements and how a single brushstroke could convey so much.

I started to experiment with the ideas within my own work. The relationship between wildlife and habitat is a central theme in much of my work, and Sargent helped me to translate my thoughts into paintings. In Sika Encounter, I've used a change in tone to emphasize or reduce impact within the painting.
