“This is my first solo exhibition for five years so I have tried to incorporate all of my favourite subjects into the paintings; sea, woods, hedges, streams…..the things that many of us walk or drive past every day.
When out on my walks or beach-combing I like to collect interesting objects, sand and materials that I use for collage on my paintings. I have also included in this exhibition several bird and fish sculptures carved from driftwood and utilising found metal.
I hope I have managed to capture and convey the beauty and essence of my chosen subjects.
I am really looking forward to the exhibition and hope that you enjoy it…” John Thornton
