Todd, Graeme
Drawing on landscape sources, from everyday postcards and tourist souvenirs to masterpieces of German Romantic painting and Japanese art, Graeme Todd combines meticulously drawn fragments with abstract blocks of colour and layers of translucent glazes of poured varnish, overlaid with strings of free-floating fine ink lines. Although his paintings are not landscapes in any traditional sense, many of his works have been inspired by experiencing dramatic landscapes. After a visit to the Klontel Valley in Switzerland in 2001, Todd drew inspiration from the sublime landscapes of peaks and valleys in the region. The starting point for 'Mushroom' was a field of wild mushrooms.
