This current series of paintings is a slight departure from Hird’s established landscape style and working method. The interpretation, graphic mark making and contemporary colour palette are new - although the landscape genre is still the underlying driving force.
“My paintings are a celebration of place, particularly those areas of remote upland that I visit frequently and know so well. These selected locations are imprinted within my memory and I can’t resist visiting them time and time again to paint and sketch. On this occasion it was refreshing to begin a series and slowly introduce more graphic, colour heightened elements - linking abstract linear marks in the foreground with a traditional distant landscape."
