I want people to know what it is they’re looking at. But at the same time, the closer they get to the painting, it’s like going back into childhood. And it’s like an abstract piece.. it becomes the landscape of the brush marks rather than just sort of an intellectual landscape – Jenny Saville
With my landscape work I’m always trying to interpret a feeling, mood or emotion, rather than battling to try and replicate nature itself. My landscape work often borders on the abstract and this is the artwork that invariably gets a wide range of materials & techniques thrown at it.
