'A Journey through Painting', 3 Apr-11 May 2014
An exploration of abstraction with beginnings in landscape by Martin Walton at The Gallery at Parndon Mill.
Martin Walton has spent over 50 years as painter, beginning as a landscape painter but over time moving to explore abstraction which gave him more scope for structure in his work. The influence of the landscape remains in the use of colour in many works with browns and ochres. He feels that words to describe painting are irrelevant as the process comes from that relationship of the painter and canvas which is a journey into the unknown.
