Harry Becker’s close observation of the land and the immediacy of his images have influenced my own relatively abstract methods of capturing the Suffolk landscape.  Today, environmental pollution and information about climate change enhances our sensitivity to the natural world and the preciousness of nature.  In response to this year’s theme I wish to create a sense of unease as well as beauty, inspired by the places around Dunwich and Halesworth that I enjoy.  The physicality of the marks made by the palette knife and the materials I work with play an important role in this.
