Ronald Hellen

 

Ronald will be exhibiting with us for the first time in 2017.

I like Becker’s work because he demonstrates a real feeling for the Suffolk countryside and there is an earthy quality about his work that still makes his world immediate to us today. He was capable of taking a fresh look at ordinary activities and was able to bring a certain grandeur to the most humble occupation, imbuing his portrayal of working class people with a feeling of self-worth.
I hope to capture some of these elements in my own work by portraying modern activities against a background of traditional buildings and ancient landscapes.
