Howard Fenwick , Born 1958 in South Shields, N E England, United Kingdom studied art at Sunderland and Newcastle. Predominantly, my work includes paintings and drawings.
Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination.
By exploring the concept of landscape in a nostalgic way, I investigate the dynamics of landscape, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what landscape means to us.
My works establish a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on concrete questions that determine our existence.
My preferred media is oil paint, ink and spray paint.
