Railway Street Studios, 8 Railway St, Newmarket


All Ages

This series of paintings explore the people of Mauritania in Western Africa, as documented through the lens of photographer Patrick Smallhorn-West. I seek to capture expression, moments of time in this nomadic community, reflecting their present lives as well as the rich heritage and social structure that is part of this. In this country that is little changed over time, the profound beauty in the harsh environment the people have thrived in captivate me, along with their character.

Using acrylic, I have layered thin glazes of paint to try and maximize the natural light the surface gives. A variety of brush strokes and mark making with thick impasto in areas can give a contrast to the otherwise watercolour appearance.
