‘No traveller has ever escaped a sense of strangeness in those deep ravines, and artists shiver as they paint thick woods whose mystery is as much of the spirit as of the eye’.
H.P Lovecraft, The Colour Out of Space
Here is the vague beginning of an imaginary landscape, which was suggested by the shape of the marks I made when I prepared the canvas with a sickly green colour.
To me it looked like a nightmarish Lovecraftian mountainscape. Don’t look too closely or you may find yourself wandering those moon-drowned peaks in dreams that are exquisite, delirious and maddening.
