Artist Info:

Paul Lewin was born in Manchester in 1967. He studied at Stockport College and went on to complete a BA (hons) degree in Fine Art at Bristol Polytechnic in 1989.

Since leaving college he has lived and worked in the South West of Britain, and he now resides in West Penwith, the western most tip of Cornwall. A fluent "en plein air" painter, his work has developed in response to the characteristic coastal fringes of the peninsular. In exploring its rugged coastlines and wild interiors of moorland and valleys, the resulting works evoke a strong sense of atmosphere, through a sensitivity to the changing light and weather conditions.

Of his working method the poet Christine Evans has written:

His relationship with landscape is intense; he seems absorbed, almost subsumed into it, driven by a restless energy that is characteristic of the sort of places he is drawn to - the extreme edges of land, jutting promontories and tidal shores where frontiers between land and sea are blurred and perspectives ever changing as the sky. His practice is to complete a painting at a single sitting if possible. Sometimes a piece will resolve itself quickly, in a couple of hours or so; more often, he will be working out in the open for five or six hours or until the light goes.
