About The Artist

“Quietly creating contemplative contemporary landscapes.”

Born January 1962 in Guildford, Surrey, Graham Swain went to Portsmouth Art College to study painting after gaining an honours degree in Architecture.
His rich influences are many and varied; a priviledged education in Surrey, the third son of a senior Scotland Yard detective, marrying Emily, an actress from an acting family. His creative gifts were realised at an early age as treble soloist singing and recording in the major cathedrals of Holland, Belgium and Northern France, including Notre Dame Paris, Chartres, Rheims, Laon and the Palace of Fontainbleau.

Quality of line, purity, colour relationship and proportion and playing with perspective are the main considerations when creating his contemporary and thought-provoking landscapes.
'Pure creation and beauty is everything to me, where every mark matters.'

Also, the beauty of calligraphy often forms a structure to hang his constant and continual layering of marks and thoughts within and around landscape.

"Graham's response to landscape is contemplative. Like an elaborate game of chess, works evolve through time. Creation becomes a challenge as every mark is considered as the aesthetic process unravels towards sublime resolution. Graham's preoccupations are undoubtedly formal, but his technique relies on more than simply a conscious arrangement of shape and colour. Graham aims to intuitively distil the essence of his visual experience in a much more unlimited way. Landscape provides the ideal motif; unrestricted by figures or buildings, an exploration is permitted which ultimately pervades pure creation."

Sally-Ann Schilling, MA History of Art, The Courtauld Institute of Art, Former Art Historian and Lecturer, Tate Modern, London.

About The Artist

I am a local artist, based in Eastbourne – art has always been an intrinsic part of my life. I originally went to Eastbourne Art College, to study Graphic Design. I completed my studies at degree level and continue to have a successful commercial career.

Over the last few years, I’ve made time to enjoy experimenting more with different media and discovered ink and bleach. I love the energy and unpredictability of using two colours of ink and achieving many more when the bleach works its magic! I sometimes like to include black fine liner and gold acrylic details when I need more detail or highlights. I find constant inspiration from my surrounding views of the South Downs and local coastline.
