Beyond the Hedgerow

Title: Beyond the Hedgerow
Description: Beyond the Hedgerow is a 30x30x1.5 inches oil painting impression of the view through an April hedgerow across fields to a lake beyond. The back ground of the painting shows green meadows and trees and a glimpse of a lake between them. The foreground shows a knot of brambles and blossom and spring foliage that are painted in a semi abstract impressionist style. The painting was inspired by a walk I took near Bewl water in Sussex. I like the feeling of being able to see something alluring but of having to be able to get to it (analogous to life generally I think). Hedgerows always fascinate me – especially the really ancient ones as they consist of many kinds of flora and fauna and are vital habitats for birds and animals. They act as both barriers and protection and I have tried to show this dual purpose – to a walker it hurts to go through them but as someone who loves wildlife and landscapes I love them! Painted on deep edge canvas, white edges, ready to hang.

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.
