Original acrylic on mdf board by Manchester born Daniel Riley representing the green countryside of the Holcombe Moor hills, in the area between Bury and Ramsbottom, Lancashire. Daniel is an artist, inspired by his love of the outdoors and his personal connection with the spaces and places which he experiences. He loves to hike out to remote places away from civilisation and sit and absorb the ambiance of his surroundings. As a keen photographer he enjoys capturing scenes with his camera; his landscape photographs being artworks in their own right. Back at the studio however, he uses the photographic documentation as references to be abstracted and mixed with his memories of how a place felt. He then strives to communicate the essence of the place through textures, multiply layers of paint and ambiguous forms. His work can often be minimalistic or reductionist in that he likes to break things down to their base elements to communicate something that is purer and more refined. Daniel is inspired by the ever changeable light and weather conditions synonymous with the British countryside and the atmospheric conditions found in the moorlands of the Peak District and Pennine Lancashire, Daniel uses texture, tone and ambiguous, abstract forms to communicate how a location felt emotionally rather than aiming to produce a literal representation of the scene.
