Sketchbook Notes by John Boyle

These paintings follow observations of landscape but the concerns and processes of painting are more important than external reference. They are about gesture, area, edge; about flatness and illusion and about obtaining a visual balance through contrast.
The paintings test these elements of painting, expressed in equally basic features of landscape  —  field, road, horizon, sky.
