His self-taught work focuses on the wild spaces of Southwest England. He is intrigued by the varied coastlines, ever changing moors and constantly evolving woodlands. The drama in the relationships between the sea, land and sky provide a never ending source of inspiration. His work tries to capture these sometimes intimate, sometimes powerful moments that could otherwise be missed. Having lived in Cornwall, Dorset and Somerset his work is born out of a response to these special places.
He employs the oil paint in varying ways, sometimes applied thinly in washes, sometimes thickly in an impasto style with brushes and knives. He believes it is important to have a direct connection to the subject and, as such, works both on site and in the studio to create his art. Each piece is approached individually; the paintings evolve and take different journeys. Some are finished in one sitting; others require more thought and can change many times before they reach their end state.
Tinca are delighted to host this first exhibition of work by this young talented Somerset artist and excited to see how his work evolves over the coming years.
