I am a contemporary landscape painter working from a small studio in Worcestershire.

Working from sketchy, blotchy, inky notes made in the field, my paintings tend not to be directly representational but a fusion of emotion and response to that place. These sketches will hold notes about shape and space, weather and wind, and light and dark.

As such, they are most definitely landscapes although sometimes there is more of an abstraction about them.

I work quickly with high pigment acrylics on heavyweight Fabriano paper with both painting knife and brush, trying to bring the immediacy and energy of my sketches to the finished paintings. Scratched marks are ever present in my work indicating felt or seen movement.

Gallery 54 – The Premier Art Gallery in Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire.

A fine collection of contemporary abstract art set within a 17th Century listed building.

Gallery 54 is accessible to everyone who enjoys viewing paintings, ceramics and glassware.

The 17th century building has been sympathetically restored to revitalise the quality and solidity of its natural building materials. Fusing original features with clean-lined contemporary design, Gallery 54 provides a space with an understated elegance and quirky appeal.

The exhibition space consists of two discrete floors balanced and accessed by an open stairwell gallery. The stairwell creates an open house ambience and displays artworks in a homely situ.

The strength of Gallery 54 lies in the calibre and integrity of the collected art. The viewing experience is energised by the juxtaposition of old and new. Contemporary abstract art backs on to the inherited architecture, off-setting modernity with sculptural period charm.

Gallery 54 currently exhibits work from over 20 artists. Some garnered from rich local talent, whilst others are national and international artists. Although the works lean towards, or securely belong in the abstract/modern genre, this does not limit their diversity.

All the artists share a keen aesthetic sense, absorption in interrelations of space, form and colour and evident joy in the suggestive ambiguity of abstract art.

Current artists include Alison MacGregor Grimley, Daniel Calderwood, Jo Jenkins, Mary Rose Young, Stuart Ellis, Amanda Hemmer, Duncan Johnson, Joanna Mayne, Rachel Sudworth, Zoe Taylor, Annica Neumuller, Fausta Scarano, John Maxwell Steele, Stephen Rippington, Celia Johnson, Isobel Mitchell, Maria Pierides and Steve Payter
