Maurice Cockrill RA
"The paintings that I am making in the Conwy Valley are the descendants of my 'Conwy River Cycle' of 1998 and have principally the same intentions and characteristics. They are the result of a continuing visual encounter with a fragment of landscape that I have known and loved since childhood, that I still find absorbing and meaningful. An object that is absorbing and meaningful is what I hope to make when I paint, something to be experienced in an equivalent way. What links this work in the field with my studio practice in the city is some degree of gesture - permitting some freedom to the materials and instruments, not pressing the means into simple illustration of appearances but allowing an image to evolve naturally from thought/feeling." Maurice Cockrill April 2003.
