About

John Maltby (Devon) is recognised as one of the country's finest ceramic artists, his figures and creatures holding a wit and profundity that reflect the human condition and are inextricably linked to the English landscape and experience. ‘My work continues to draw its inspiration from the ‘Englishness' of my experience. Although many of the subjects re-appear, I place them both in a traditional continuum, yet relevant to my contemporary condition.' Arcane sites are a recurring theme throughout Peter Jackman's (Windsor, Berkshire) work where man has modified the landscape through physical changes to the landform or through the positioning of objects and artificial structures: with the passage of time the boundary between the natural and artificial becomes indistinct. Peter says: ‘My drawings are interpretations of landscapes and objects within the landscape, in a semi-abstract form. It is this link to the past and a sense of the inevitable re-assertion of the natural environment which, for me, gives these sites their particular power. My work is created by layers of drawing and with graphite, pastels and chalk, these layers are then cut through by scratching, scraping and further overdrawing to create a more complex surface'.
