Graham Rider – Above Laxey Mines


Medium: oil on canvas
Dimensions: 100 x 100 cm

A person may have moved house many times but ‘home’ can be the state of mind one returns to when you make paintings. It’s the area of one’s personality that speaks to ‘identity’, to this activity which we feel we do well, a feeling that is strong enough for a person to make sacrifices but also gain confidence to become a better person. In this painting Graham not only takes an image of a landscape but tries to make it more ‘landscape’ by using themes such as tracks located across the hillside drawn and redrawn, paint applied to form mass that feels like a towering mountain; techniques that render a hillside in light and recreate the feel of snow falling; perspective that suggests trees in the distance.
