John Penney | ArtGallery.co.uk
I have been an artist/craftsman for over 25 years. I have been producing and selling both my paintings and my own wooden furniture through commissions and small exhibitions, and more recently via online galleries, throughout this period. I am now concentrating on my paintings, both as originals and limited edition Giclee prints. I paint in a quite distinctive style, lying somewhere between surrealism and traditional representational genres - Perhaps "Magical Realism" best captures my mix of genres. I use often complex composition, great detail, vivid colour, and often exaggerated perspective, to create drama and mood - often in a slightly surreal "dreamscape" format. Most pictures have an apparent "story" too - for the viewer to determine.
