The Gamechanger

Title: The Gamechanger
Description: The Gamechanger is a large autumn landscape with a magical stag appearing on a woodland path. It is 40x40x1.5 inches, white edges, no frame needed. The style is semi abstract art nouveau and shows a deer stag on the left looking toward the viewer. He is not fully formed but is making his presence felt in that imperious way that stags have. Behind him and to the right is a path and autumn coloured trees in bright gold, orange and magenta. The forest itself was inspired by Eartham forest on the South Downs near Slindon. I was there in late summer and took a long walk through the various paths through the trees without meeting a soul. It was hot and quiet and a little bit spooky and I could believe every fairy story I ever read whilst I was there. The Stag is a recurring theme in Sussex landscape paintings because the forests that used to cover the area still have many pockets of woodland left where deer are quite abundant. Despite this, they manage to remain beautiful and if any woodland creature is magical, it is the deer. This stag has a message and you have to walk the path to find it. He is a gamechanger.

Artist Biography:

I am a Sussex based artist who paints large original landscape paintings and seascape paintings in oil on canvas.

My art is painted mostly from memory after having visited somewhere beautiful and are an attempt to capture some of the essence of that place.
​

I gained a fine art degree from Brighton in 1983 and began my painting career as a portraitist and muralist. However, sometime in the late 90�s, after painting my 200th labrador, I realised I was crushingly bored and needed to develop my own painting style and began to paint landscapes and seascapes for my own amusement.



I am inspired by the patterns and movements of nature and animals and eventually developed a painting style that combines traditional painting techniques with more abstract and contemporary techniques.



My artworks evolve from simple ideas, usually after I have taken a walk somewhere. They are expressionistic, impressionist, art deco, art nouveau and something possibly unique to me in the feeling they evoke.



I like to think that paintings have �little souls� woven into them by artist�s and that these are what call to a viewer (or not as the case may be) and give a painting presence and desirability.

​

My goal is to one day paint a place so beautiful I will disappear into it and never be seen again and to create worlds where others can do the same � even if only for a little while.
