THE DART COLOURS

The Dart Colours were painted after I swam “the Dart River 10k” in Devon with the Outdoor Swimming Society.  I was enticed to swim the river by Alice Oswald’s poem ‘Dart’.  I am interested in how viewers look at and absorb paintings.  I wanted the experience to be tactile and personal and for viewers to be able to close and revisit the pictures just like a good poem.
