Although George Shaw looks once again to his home town of Coventry to inspire his work, this time it shows a more rural, picturesque view albeit with Shaw's dramatic style and taking influence from Van Gough and Francis Bacon.
Although appearing to be a quaint country road, these trees, bushes and hedgerows are to be found just ten minutes away from the urban housing estate Shaw grew up in and which he depicted so honestly in his Humboldt paint style in previous work. Here, the painting shows the landscape taken from hundreds of photos Shaw took over many years of walking the route whether alone or with other people. He specifically recalls walking with his father to a pretty local village which, although it was near to the sprawling estate where they lived, seemed a million miles away from it, helping to recharge his dad and to build a determination in Shaw to succeed in the art world and share his artistic voice in relation to the world around him. Both haunting and beautiful these six lithographs will make an impact to any living room, study or bedroom whether bought separately or put together.
