Gareth Watson

Gareth Watson has been drawing for as long as he can remember, and began painting full time in 2003. Working almost exclusively in pencil and watercolour, he creates timeless, semi-abstract images, more concerned with capturing light and space than in recording the details of the scenes. Drawings focus on the stuff of things, while the locations which prompt the paintings tend to be remote and are scattered not only throughout Britain, but also in such areas as the Alps, Iceland and Scandinavia. Ancient sites often make their mark, and a sense of order and balance that is almost architectural pervades the work.
