PETER MIDLANE
Born 1954, East London
 

My Approach

“I work primarily in oil and use the technique to explore aspects of the landscape around me. What interests me particularly are the marks left by man on the land and in some ways, my work is a record of the passage of man over the landscape. I would classify my works as realist in a similar vein to the nineteenth century movement. The work is largely a reflection of reality rather than any form of Romanticism.”

"The theme is broadly mans’ mark on the land and the issues of land ownership and exploitation as well as regional history and myth. The etchings explore line and tone through a range of intaglio techniques. Technique and medium are very important and cannot be separated from iconology."
