The original inspiration for this series came from an afternoon spent staring into a goldfish pond in the garden of the Villa Carlotta on Lake Como. The scene had many changing layers, the surface of the water, things reflected in the water, the fish, the bottom of the pond and so on. Later, when I was living in Venice, I became fascinated anew by reflections in water. The paintings do not represent scenes but are an analogy of that multi-layered visual experience, and something I hope you can enjoy staring into in the same way, letting your eye range across the painting, pausing to take in details here and there. Some of these are on heavy watercolour paper, others on canvas.
