Says Kevin Perkins of his landscape paintings: “My landscapes are not just about painting the outdoors. Often a painting will develop out of a feeling or mood rather than an attempt to paint a particular place. My interest in the landscape as a subject comes out of my belief that the land holds a depth, life and death, history. In this way, painting a landscape can never be benign. The simple recording of a place does not hold or sustain my interest because it lacks this depth. Therefore, these paintings are not a specific locale; they are an expression of feeling carried through brushstroke and colour through the platform of nature.
“Most of my landscapes are painted from memory or start from a photo that I’ve taken. The forms change and the colors evolve in an intuitive way. The paintings in this show display an evolution in my process as I am moving more in the direction of a raw, unfiltered approach to the canvas.”
