The Battle of Maldon
Standing on the promenade in Maldon is a statue of Brithnoth which commemorates the Battle of Maldon in 991AD at which the Saxon leader tried to repel Viking invaders.
Through the gathering clouds over the modern vista, my painting attempts to evoke the imagined fear of known but unseen invaders in an empty landscape.
Oils on board
When travelling around Europe, one comes across standing stones beside ancient tracks or hidden in woods. It is fascinating to think that in this way, people can be commemorated for thousands of years.
