Jeff Powell lives on the north Cornish coast in South West England famous for the British Modernist artists Nicholson, Hepworth and Frost. The redolent forms in his abstract landscapes interact with drawing materials and colour to create balance and dissonance. The space the image occupies is influenced by memory, a sense of infinity, the void and an acknowledgement of the picture plane. Powell has rarely exhibited his drawings, he sees drawing as one-way of reaffirming ones humanity; primordial; powerful; beautiful and romantic.
