About Neil Pinkett
"I have lived in Cornwall most of my life and exposure to such a dramatic environment has inspired me to paint.
The landmass of West Penwith is small but encompasses such geographic diversity - from the turquoise seas of Lamorna on the South Coast to the wild rocky outcrops and crashing waves of the North Coast, and great stretches of moorland in between.
I work with a knife as I want to express as forcefully as I can the forces of nature, the ever-changing elements, cloud formations, piercing blue skies over acres of red bracken, the raw beauty of the landscape. The natural progression towards paintings on a greater scale is leading to an exploration of larger landscapes further afield."
