regularly visits the Peak District from Sheffield for walks and
inspiration and has an intimate knowledge of the edges and moorlands
throughout the changing seasons.
Influenced by Turner and Girtin, his
paintings reveal the
atmosphere and space of the landscape in it's various moods.The
paintings reflect an autumn theme of the earth yielding its colours of
bracken and heathers to warm sunlight in windswept Peak District valley
and moorland views. Kristan uses textured layers of paint mixed with
sand and gritstone to create sculptured canvases that emit a light and
shadow of their own to portray the subtly changing colour and mood of the
landscape in different light.
