John Hubbard is a landscape painter whose roots lie in the spontaneity and energy of Abstract Expressionism, but whose relationship to the real world remains tangible. In his desire to convey the feel of a particular landscape and the essence of sunlight, he is as much influenced by JMW Turner as Abstract Expressionism.
In the late 1960s, Hubbard began visiting a disused granite quarry at Haytor on Dartmoor. Working in the quarry itself, he made charcoal drawings of the rock face, and later made oil paintings derived from the drawings.
