Arthur Homeshaw (1933-2011) was a powerful artist and lino-cut printmaker who gave us his own original take on the landscape. Whilst Arthur drew inspiration from the likes of Paul Nash and Eric Ravilious his chosen pallette, his study of complex patterns in the landscape and semi-abstract representations of these were uniquely his. His focus was largely on the varied Devon landscape and he was one of very few artists who could give us fresh ways of looking at Dartmoor. Arthur was a member of the Royal West Academy where he was a regular exhibitor and he was best known in the South West of England. However, he also showed at the Royal Academy and his work is in private collections throughout the UK. Read more.....
In Arthur's own words:
'The wooden engravings of Eric Ravilious have been a constant source of inspiration
since my student days when I studied wood engraving. Later when I became more
involved with linocut prints Ravilious' use of pattern and texture in his watercolour
paintings became an influence as did the visionary landscapes of Samuel Palmer
