In preparation for this week's Burnham Art Trail, I've got to write some more blurb. Gawd, I hate writing them, but here goes…
I have, since a child, been fascinated by the varied wild, remote, areas of Britain, be it moorland, mountain or coastal low-land. These works, on display, are inspired by the distinctive landscapes of East Anglia, and the local surroundings in eastern Essex, in particular. Depicting this often bleak scenery, in an interesting, insightful way, presents a challenge. The landscape is usually featureless, expansive and lacking in any distinctive focal point. Thus, I have resorted to the use of abstraction as a way to portray the sense of openness, loneliness and beautiful isolation of these places.
I have been painting semi-professionally for approximately four years. In this time I have sold many paintings domestically and, more recently, internationally, via the internet and galleries in the South East of England.
If you want to see more of my work, I have produced a small leaflet featuring some of my other recent pieces. There are other unframed works, and prints, you will be able to view, and buy, at the museum. If you want to purchase please visit my online store at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/PaulBaileyArt. These shop details, along with contact addresses, are also listed on the leaflet available within the shop.
Thanks for looking,
