Simon Whitfield

My paintings are inspired by the solid immovable motifs the artist returns to continually, often rebuffed by the elements; but always to be discovered afresh in a different season or mood. Crag,rock, the wilderness of the high fell which quietly awaits discovery. What moves me is the solitude, an intense primordial quiet broken only by the iron clank of scree and boulder, skylarks wheeling and the hard metallic croak of ravens.
