Biography

Alistair’s work is based upon the British landscape; its shape and form and the effects of the weather and light upon it. He states that “the landscape is always changing depending upon the weather or the season; this excites me enormously and I see my art as a visual record of an ongoing playtime where I am searching, probing, observing what I see, feel and experience whilst outdoors. My aim when working back in the studio is to preserve the frisson of the first encounter, to try and capture the timeless nature of a place, the presence and essence or what Paul Nash called the “genius loci”, hopefully without slavish verisimilitude.”

That seems to sum Alistair’s work up rather well.
