About the artist:
Brian is a professional artist, Tutor and Frame Maker. He has drawn and painted since early boyhood and is mostly self taught. He an elected member of numerous Midland and East Anglian Societies, The Royal Birmingham Society of Artists included.
His work is exhibited commercially at numerous UK Galleries and was purchased by the ITV Series – “Kingdom”. He has recently been featured in the 2010n edition of “Who’s Who in Art” and is currently official artist for the Black Country Living Museum..
He inspired by the abstract element within the subject, very often atmospheric and light conditions enhance the abstract quality that he is seeking. Sometimes it is the bigger landscape that he finds inspirational, other times it can be merely a cameo of the overall view, but there is rarely a day goes by when he does not see something that inspires him to paint
He believes that an artists work should be consistently shifting, moving forward, always looking for new avenues to express ones vision. He says that “I can only achieve this the more that I paint, the more that I gain confidence in applying paint, the more that I can express freely by pushing the paint and the subject matter in unison. The end result is I hope a work that is fresh, free of labour and true expression of how I feel about a subject. As a result of this, I learn new techniques along the way and this helps in introducing new aspects to my work.”
