THE NORTHERNER

This Exhibition has now finished within the gallery, the below works are still available online only as a limited edition run of prints.

 

The Northerner was born into a family of miners based in the North of England. Influenced by Cornish and Lowry, The Northerner paints warm, familiar scenes of working class ‘Northerners’, of miners, shipyards and the like. Working in charcoal, he feels the drawings have a connection with the materials his father and grandfather mined from the ground.

Although the subject matter has been depicted time and time again, the Northerner feels his latest releases offer a unique insight into the real working lives of the miners.
