Alasdair LINDSAY

Studio

'My painting is based on what I see everyday in and around Falmouth harbour and when I go further afield to the beaches on the north and south coasts of Cornwall. I study these places regularly and sometimes make drawings on site, although I usually paint from memory and through experiment. For me a painting should be an object of aesthetic pleasure and exploration. This may be from the reaction of colours to give a certain mood, or from the contrast of fluid or rough brushwork sitting next to areas of precise painting. Often the subject of my painting becomes secondary to the emerging pattern of abstract areas, which must be evaluated and perhaps edited for the sake of the overall composition.'
