This is a series of paintings and drawings from Cuba and the Andaman Islands which I am exhibiting alongside photographs by my wife Claudia. The show will be held over Easter at The Warehouse, 16-18 North Street, Burnham Market, Norfolk, PE31 8HG
The show presents and a response to the particular kind of languor and romance evoked by islands and coastal places, and the ongoing legacy of artists such as Gauguin and Peter Doig. The special light and the colour of islands is a subject that has a continuous hold of my visual imagination. All the paintings in this show are sketched from life but I am working on a series of studio paintings based on my experience of Cuba.
