About John’s Work
Travelling around the UK and abroad, John explores new and established themes with equal enthusiasm. Destinations throughout Europe have inspired his work, from the beautiful greenery of the Cotswold countryside, and the bustling streets of Covent Garden, to the glow of a Tuscan field, and the shimmer of reflections on blue Venice waters. With each piece, John conveys the particular qualities of light and atmosphere he encounters, and recreates the experience of the scene within his work. From his largest pieces exceeding 100cm across, down to works just 40cm wide, every carefully composed landscape and cityscape is captured with a vibrant palette and assured brushwork. John is also renowned for his striking Jazz club scenes, which are steeped in rich red tones, and capture the joyful hubbub of the nightlife atmosphere.
John builds up layers of texture and hue with acrylic paint, and creates a sense of his paintings glowing from within. Working in an impressionistic style, John’s work references the likes of Manet and Renoir with his ability to capture the fleeting moments in life, and preserve the beauty of the scene in all of its glory. His artworks are both emotionally evocative and visually exciting, by creating an intimacy between painting and viewer.
John’s bustling cityscapes, romantic Venetian canals, and peaceful beach scenes are traditional at heart, but utterly timeless in content. His larger works are perfect stand-out statement pieces; intuitively designed to capture attention with uplifting colours and familiar scenes, whilst holding the gaze through the artist’s inviting handling of fine details. John’s smallest works possess all the same charm, and are tailored to suit even the most petite of spaces. His classical impressionist style is suited to traditional and modern interiors alike, offering a tasteful and understated splash of colour to even the most contemporary of interiors.
