Pheasant Hunting

120x105cm

First in a series of 4 paintings using mud, charcoal, cement and found objects. I wanted to move away from pictorial or topographical representations of a landscape and instead try to capture a set of experiences within that landscape through notational, diagrammatic mark making. Some woods near where I live are used to breed pheasants; I found myself ironically hunting out these hidden places that are a key part of the culture of shooting, and collecting hundreds of discarded shotgun shells.
