In this post, I’d like to discuss the idiosyncratic language of landscape painting and how the artist uses this language to convey both representations but also feeling and how, as painters, it is the physicality of the medium that offers these possibilities for fusing both feeling and subject matter.
Returning to visit the location of my old studio in Cornwall, after many years away. Visiting familiar locations and old friends, gathering inspiration for a new series based on my relationship with the area.
Recently, I have been working on a series of still-life paintings for the Thomas Henry Gallery in Newlyn, Cornwall.I have always loved still life, there is something about the quiet nature of the scene that I find appealing. From Cezanne to Giorgio Morandi, a still life can be both evocative and familiar….
I welcome commissions and working with a client on a bespoke painting is a real pleasure. For me, it is the fusion of two visions aligning that is the most satisfying element and whilst I will say no to pet and human portraits, as it is not my area of expertise, I am always open to working on any landscape that means something to a client. This could be from a photograph, in situ (depending on location) or something from my imagination.
