Natural States is a series of oil paintings and ink drawings which are inspired and drawn from the collections 'Helium Balloon' and 'True Colours'.
The images in this collection abstract elements from the original collages. These elements demonstrate another dimension that their positioning communicates. By isolation and refraction the qualities the particular element presents are highlighted and they become their own individual composition.
The final image speaks with a sense of freedom and openness, poetic in its interpretation now separated from its earlier ambiguous composition.
