Artist Statement: The landscape is never static. It is a continuum of moving and merging images, changing texture, secrets concealed in shadow and subtle detail. Whether a powerful seascape, a flat desert in blazing heat, a precipitate cliff or a black reedy backwater. All have a potential vibrancy, a hidden well of energy that can be revealed with a light flick or textured fold of paint. - Ken Strong.
