The subject matter of my work is as much rooted in the natural world as it is in the art of the past, occasionally my pictures are completely abstract but mostly figurative, predominately landscapes, inspired by where I live in Wales and what I see around me.
I am particularly fond of the period in European art around 1900, and the work of my grandfather, Martin Bloch (1883-1954) remains a prime influence.
If you look at my work hoping for stylistic integrity or any one single ideology you might be confused as I pursue several different approaches simultaneously, what unites my work is a feeling for colour. Self taught as a painter, I aim to achieve a consistent freshness of approach.
