People and Places


‘Why people and places? Well we are all very adept from our earliest days at recognising and interpreting the infinite nuances of body language. Clearly a painting cannot convey speech, but figures by their physical appearances, poses and gestures can tell a story. Similarly buildings in a solid form reflect the foibles of the societies and individuals that created them, from the grand imperial to the humble shed they embody human history and endeavour, sublime and sinister, sententious and ephemeral. Altogether terrific subject matter to be explored.’
