A winter walk on Martinique Beach and a collection of old paint shirts proved to be the catalysts for this latest body of works.

Each of these paintings is a collage of materials, experiences and ideas bound together by wax and pigments and ordered by a horizon.  Land and sky reveal and conceal fragments of handmade papers made from Stanfield’s studio work shirts. Collars, pockets, edges and buttons that were left over have found their way into these constructed works.
