About Nicholas Hughes
Born Liverpool, 1963.
Having become engaged by nature at an early age before seeing how the natural world suffered at the expense of 1980's corporate profit - I was led into fundraising for an environmental pressure group. Increasing awareness of the fragility and preciousness of nature drew me closer still to the landscape.
The work formerly dependent upon a transient lifestyle alludes to universal Romantic themes, allied to an environmental sensibility. Each seeks to illustrate the frail residue of the contemporary wilderness through reduced visions of the sublime within localised nature.
