The inspiration

Strongly influenced by the countryside of West Cornwall, John is well known for his paintings of the moors, carns, headlands and cliffs that characterise this landscape. More recently cottages and farm buildings have been predominant in his work. He applies paint in several layers, often with deeply etched lines allowing contrasting colours to show through. Looming skies or large expanses of moorland create a dramatic, often stark effect. John always works with oils, smaller paintings usually being on board, larger on canvas.

The artist

John Piper was born in Salisbury, Wiltshire in 1946 and moved to Cornwall while still at school. He taught painting and ceramics in Penzance for 20 years before leaving in order to paint full time. John is well-known for his paintings of the cottages, carns, headlands and moors that characterise the landscape of Cornwall. He applies paint in several layers, deeply etched lines allowing the contrasting colours of the under-painting to show through. Looming skies or large expanses of moorland create a stark effect. John is a member of the Penwith Society of Artists and a former Chairman of the Newlyn Society of Artists.
