Pete Marsh


Pete’s work is representational comprising largely of landscape and figurative work. He uses “plein-air” sketches, studio sketches, photographs and occasionally digital manipulation techniques to help to produce, not just a facsimile of what he sees, but something that expresses what he and (hopefully) his audience feels. Pete attributes his love of landscape to his hours of mountain biking and walking through the north-west Pennines.
 He feels his work is perceptual rather than conceptual, emotional rather than intellectual and he prefers expression over realism, subtlety over sensationalism, substance over novelty and intuition over reason. He endeavors to express something beyond visual verisimilitude. Pete’s work is held in private collections in the U.K., Canada and Australia.
