Steve Brockett’s semi-abstract canvases are distilled thoughts, thick with symbolic figures and animals, historic references and mythical reimagining.

They are immersed in the rich earthy hues and potent skies intrinsic to the landscapes of Spain that inspire his work. The content and technique of his paintings present the viewer with images that are both arresting and challenging.

The distorted visualisations are simultaneously familiar but mysterious, raw and sensual, imposing yet fragile.

His pictorial language, is embodied by his experience of inhabiting the aerial world both as a long time paragliding pilot and through his earlier internationally renowned work as a kite artist. The affinity the artist has with flight, of being in the air and sky, evokes a dream-like, detached observer quality that offers a unique narrative, dense with meaning.
