Stood in the rugged landscape of Cornwall a hawthorn is the only thing on the exposed hillside growing higher than knee height. The south westerly wind ensures that everything grows in one direction and creates the surreal impression of a landscape combed over by a giant hand. Autumnal earth colours mix with fiery reds and yellows and in the foreground Steven has used impasto acrylic, washed with inks to create the textures of the gorse and golden brown grasses. Ink and acrylic on Fabriano heavyweight paper, varnished. This work is framed in a simple, dark box frame and white mount. Steven Buckler is a Cornish artist whose expressive mark making and bold use of colour not only captures the unique landscape in all its glory, but also the light and atmosphere for which Cornwall is famed. Steven works almost entirely on paper, favouring a high quality heavy Fabriano paper. In order to ensure the work is preserved and protected he applies a clear varnish to finished pieces and ensures that all mounting is done with specialist acid free materials. The final result is a work on paper more robust than a canvas and with the same longevity. CLICK AND BUY OR PHONE 01326 219323, mobile 07913 848515
