Nocturnes, 2015

 

Nocturne: St Philip's Road

Nocturne: St Philip’s Road

The “Nocturnes” series grew from twilight drawings, done mainly while waiting outside my son’s piano lessons. I have therefore borrowed the title from musical vocabulary to imply the closeness of night in many senses; the passing of the light, the ending of something, the phase after the active one. This is played out in works which I combined into a small studio show in winter 2015, from the more obvious context of evening windows to those which reflect on stages in our later life.
