About the Work
"This landscape connects directly to my rural background and upbringing. Instantly, I feel as if I am about to muster this small mob with one of the old farm dogs. Being a member of Marton Young Farmers Club, it’s a rather nice coincidence this landscape is from the area.
It’s rather unfortunate about the way Edith Collier’s more ‘modernistic’ art was received when she returned from Europe after World War One, but I guess someone had to pave the way. We really are fortunate that the Sarjeant is the custodian of the Edith Collier Trust collection for our community. (To find out more I’d really suggest watching the documentary Edith Collier: A Light Among Shadows)."
