I have a studio at Harrington Mill Studios in Long Eaton. As an artist I am influenced by my urban surroundings and our geographical context. The paintings I have submitted to this exhibition reflect the continually changing structures which surround us. As our culture adapts and evolves the use of our land, buildings and infrastructure becomes relevant and irrelevant. We are increasingly realising that our response to change also needs to adapt and that regeneration of space and place has become vital to the progression of our landscapes in Nottinghamshire and the rest of Britain.
