Every day, I happen to survey St Aubin’s Bay, and in a calmly imagined manner it has become a backdrop to my painting, which, for several years has had me caught up in the notion of the continuous panoramic. The notion allows for the idea that if one creates a sequence A B C, one can then quite happily remove any section and paint something completely different to sit in its place – all’s well so long as the edges join – meanwhile, the section removed, may generate a sequence along a fresh course, still relating in some way to the sequence it used to be part of.
