Silent Pool

 

The Silent Pool, is a natural spring water environment/beauty spot based at Shere in Surrey quite near to Guildford and the A25. I found an instant connection to this place in terms of its natural calmness and focused energy creating a series of paintings back in 2001 (external link will go here). Although not my primary interest, there are many local myths and stories surrounding The Silent Pool involving drowning Maiden's being frightened by horsemen.
 

 

He works in this gallery reflect upon my frequent returns to the silent pool over several years and these approach landscape in a very broad sense and are about the correlation of looking, experiencing and relating to space in keeping with the approaches of using system and sequence which appears in much of my work.
