Roy Pickering - Borrowed Land
After moving back to his native Welbeck in the heart of Sherwood Forest from London in 2003, Roy Pickering has been working on a series of paintings focused on the surrounding landscape. This, his first solo exhibition in Nottingham, presents a comprehensive selection of recent work and includes large format canvases as well as small oil paintings on aluminium. Borrowed Land seeks to explore questions of land ownership, the passage of time and the fragility of landscape. Pickering’s studio - an old converted cowshed - sits in the middle of a scene that has been subject to both quarrying and farming. His work reveals a personal response to the transformative effects of human intervention on nature.
