Moored Boats, Lago Di Orta

About This Piece

A little known lake in the very north of Italy. It eventually leads on into Switzerland. I spent many holidays here with relations. A very peaceful spot.

Artist Statement

Fine Art Painter specialising in Still Life, Interiors, Venice and Jazz. After the benefits of a traditional art education rooted in the principles of design and draughtsmanship, I am almost inevitably, a realist artist and the control of colour and light are still the fascinating daily challenges. When I concentrate on a Still Life or detail from a larger subject, I re-live the pleasure of close observation inculcated in my student days. For me, a Still Life is never a Nature Morte. When painted, even an inanimate object can express vitality. With interiors, I am particularly drawn to what is mysterious or suggested leaving a subliminal narrative open to interpretation by the viewer. Fortunate, for long periods, to have lived in Italy – particularly Venice – I have latterly made regular trips to Provence and Northern France. These experiences, and a lifetime’s love of Jazz, are obviously reflected in my work. Among Artists, I readily admit to the influence of Wyeth, Tindle, Hopper, Caravaggio and Vermeer.
