John Birch

An abstract artist working in Cornwall UK.

After years of working with figurative subject matter, finally in 2020 my work evolved to became fully abstract - abandoning all reference to the subject matter and embracing and expanding the technique that I have used over the past few years - that of applying paint by dripping and throwing which introduces a random and dynamic element to my work. Being freed from the image has also allowed me the freedom to use an unlimited range of colours - a freedom which I am using to the full. 

Although there is now no reference to subject matter - I believe that the works are nevertheless strongly influenced by and embedded in the spirit of the Cornish environment, history, myths and legends.
