Shelley Hocknell
The driving force behind Hocknell's work is the 'tenuous relationship of mind and body' which she expresses in dramatic and dynamic climbing pictures. In these unique and highly original works the observer can feel the climbers strength and control, allowing the artist to impart the idea of the co-operative bond between people and their environment which is far more than just clinging to the sheer face of existence.
The experimental nature of these exciting pictures, supported by sound mark-making, has led to considerable interest amongst critics and collectors, and exhibitions in many highly regarded galleries, establishing Hocknell as one of Britains finest young artists. This artist is willing to consider commissions - email enquiries@welshpaintings.co.uk.
