86 years old, the reclusive and eminent artist John Kingerlee, who was described by a leading New York Times art critic as the'best artist since Turner'. A non-conformist at heart, John has turned his back on the traditional way of seeing and depicting landscape - as a series of parallel planes that are made to appear to recede from foreground to background by the artists manipulation of linear and aerial perspective. Recognising that perspective itself is a mathematical construct, John takes a different approach that is as radical as it is original.He states that he wants his art to recreate the experience of being in and moving through the landscape.
