On Daniel Ablitt
‘My surroundings often provide the starting point for my work. This could be a visit to an area of outstanding natural beauty, woodland and alpine forests having a significant influence, along with the landscape of South Somerset where I live and work. My memories of my childhood also have a strong influence on my work, conveying a sense of nostalgia.
I am concerned with using paint to evoke a mood or atmosphere and am fascinated by the stillness that can be found in these part-imagined, part-remembered places. I am also interested in the possibilities of the paint itself, with the result that parts of the work often verge towards abstraction. Unusual and dramatic compositions encourage the viewer to look at their environment in a new way.
I have had a long-standing interest in the human form. The placing of a solitary figure or a mysterious group in the landscape provides a focal point and adds a narrative aspect to the work. These pieces often have a magical, fairytale quality and can leave the viewer with more questions than answers.’
