Colin Halliday
oil on canvas

Born in Cumbria in 1964, Colin started painting thirty years ago, after a BA honours in Fine Art, Painting from Exeter in1992 he went on to establish himself in London. Moving to Derbyshire in 2005 allowed him to finally pursue his moved loved subject of Landscape. Never one to rest has seen Halliday change his style in the last ten years, the paint has become thick whilst maintaining his expressive gestural application.

“ I want a painting to look like a painting and be full of life, and complexity of application is key to that; how to describe the detail without describing it and find another way to suggest something that we are all so familiar with”
