Sea Walk

Kerry Johns

During 2020 and 2021 I did many ‘plein air’ paintings on the NSW south coast near Moruya. To sit with canvas and easel in the landscape was to witness the power and vitality of Nature. The physical difficulties of using acrylic on canvas in the open, seemed insignificant beside the intensity of working on the spot.
In the studio the painting itself and its abstract challenges tended to come to the fore. I used photographs to see and form the visual construction of the painting as well to revive its internal subjective content. Often I returned to the view when the painting was close to finished, to refresh the emotional content.
The rapid expressionistic paint quality expresses fusion with the elements of Nature.
