Hiraeth

These paintings are loosely landscape/nature based and relate to the concept of HIRAETH (sounds like – he rye th ) a longing for a time and place you may or may not have been before, a longing or nostalgia, an earnest longing or desire, or a sense of regret. The feeling of longing for a home that no longer exists or never was. These paintings are based on feelings and memories of places and spaces that have an irrational bond with my well being and place in life.

Ethereal settings based on my interests in philosophy and readings of Plato, greek mythology, August Strindberg, Joseph Campbell, and Carl Jung.
