‘Nor any drop to drink’ from The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge Rain and more rain during the winter of 2019/2020 is a sign of global warming due to our destructive practices. The poem is all about what happens when man tampers with Nature. The ancient mariner shot and killed an albatross which he was forced to hang around his neck as punishment. Bad luck befell him, all his crew died and yet he ‘could not die’ but survived in a nightmarish hell. He lived to tell this tortuous tale and how he came to a moment of lucidity finally understanding the beauty and wonder of Nature. I have always considered that the end of the human race might come about due to a lack of clean water to sustain life. Humans have polluted this World’s life giving substance. Is it too late to stop, and to reverse this?
Water, Water Everywhere - Kerry Stoker
Painting makes me happy: it feeds my soul. My work contains the essence of me. I am compelled to create – the joy it brings me is utterly fulfilling. The freedom and fun of pouring colour onto canvas and watching how the colours mix and merge sometimes controlling the flow, and out of which beautiful shapes and subtle veils of colour appear is very exciting. From these random marks I develop the image by scrubbing away or adding textural or flat solid colour, re-working other areas until it emerges, complete.
My thought processes during a paintings creation imbue meaning into each, which, for me, is a critical element for success.
