John Tookey PS

 

Artist's Statement:

I am concerned with capturing the feeling of a subject rather than a topographical likeness. The subjects I look for and find visually exciting tend to be everyday, ' slice of life' subjects- the ordinary excites me! This can be a dilapidated set of buildings or a crowded interior with interesting light effects.

Biographical Details:

Trained at Sir John Cass School of Art, London during the mid sixties in fine and graphic art.
Elected a member of the Pastel Society '82.
Became a full time painter/ tutor '88.
