Anthony Garratt's work is concerned with the weather, an experience and impact of a landscape. His research time is spent in heavy weather, in remote locations and places that have an emotional impact.
AG: “The more I paint, the more I realise that we are at the mercy of the landscape and elements. This is very appealing to me. In a world where we are obsessed with ownership and control, it is humbling and important that we are reminded to respect the weather, sea, hills and landscape on which we rely".
“Britain provides us with weather which makes us feel vulnerable. For me that is what makes it such an exciting place to paint. The sky changes continuously – one can visit a place a hundred times and each time have a different experience.”
