As I have mentioned before on this blog, I am intrigued by the patterns that I see in nature and the fact that they are repeated on different scales. From blood vessels to river deltas, these fractal patterns are everywhere.

This often ends up with some of my work having a slightly visceral quality. I even did a series of paintings called “visceral landscapes”.

This painting included papers that I had previously decorated with acrylic paint and then were then collaged on to the painting. I also used various bits of paper from magazines. After the collage I worked more layers of paint until I was happy with it.

It turned out more obviously “visceral” than usual!

I showed it to a few people recently and it has been interesting to see the reactions of those viewing the painting. It seems to be that they either love it or loathe it. What is your opinion?
