This hallucinatory landscape can either be read as a sprawling expanse of some exotic windswept moorland, or a close-up view of a furrow or fold in a pustulent and parasite infested hide - erupting with nameless alien growths and protuberances. The scene is bleak and white beneath a swarming and blackening sky of scrawled handwriting, which reads; 'a brooding cloud and a cloudy brew'. The composition of this piece refers to the “uplandscape” paintings of Clyde Holmes, and the psilocybin-rich heaths and high pastures of the ranging countryside of North Wales. Paper and pen.
