Tom Allwright - A little History
This website is about well, my Painting.
A great deal of my creative life was involved with graphic design. The computer reigned over the brush... but now, it has to stand aside, for the landscape and the brush takes precedence.
Now, I am trying to work most of my time in my "other" studio, painting, using oil brush and it's unique signature and texture of colour as it combines to create the illusions revealed by our vision of landscape.
Having grown up in and around Wells in Somerset, I have the greatest sympathy for the profound and natural landscape, not some ethereal world of pseudo fantasy. Urban and modern media driven metropolitan life and it's relentless influences, always with it's constant "look at me" demands - brash bullying pagan.
