The Sun’s Flames Captured on the Slopes of Letterettrin

This painting captures the extraordinary dynamism of the Atlantic skies and their lighting effects.

Conscious of Wittgenstein’s reflections on visual ambiguities, the artist renders a landscape where, in an instant, a rain-sodden heath is transformed to a flaming ribbon of  light.
