This exhibition showcases a cross-section of John Sprakes' recent paintings.

Many of the images have been inspired by the landscape along Hadrian's Wall, Northumberland. This stretch of dramatic landscape starts at Wallsend in Newcastle to Bo'ness on the Cumbrian coast. The Norfolk and Suffolk coast has also been a source of inspiration to John and features prominently.

Many of the paintings are Still Lifes which John has painted in various interiors.

"Drawing is important in my investigation into the seen and natural world. It is a starting point for my ideas."
