Steven Foy.  Artist’s statement

I was born in Manchester.  I moved south to study art in the 1980s, where I became enthralled with abstraction and its painterly and poetic possibilities.

I have absorbed the urban landscape of my time growing up in the north; later that of London and more recently the English country side where I now live.

I make work from my observations and experiences of colour, structure, space and my interest in industrial processes.  Here my preoccupation with the contradictions and contrasts between man-made order and organic growth come together and are interpreted in paint.
