Luke Piper ‘An English Songline’ Following the Michael and Mary currents across England “...these paintings are about recording places along the route but not just as they would appear to a camera lens. For me, all these places, recognised throughout human time, have a spirit or wild energy. Whether urban or rural, churches or hill-forts, ruins or roads they are places where the force of life itself should be feared or revered. This draws us to these special places and along paths between them. It is this wild energy, shining through and radiating that I attempt to depict, represented as light. In most I use the white of the paper or canvas to represent the feeling of energies, radiating, glowing almost ghostlike from the subject in a manner that reminds me of the halo around the Saints' and Christ's image in churches and the corona around the sun itself. The paintings also illustrate the movement, flow and channelling of the Michael and Mary currents. Through composition, structure and in the growth of vegetation, the flow is seen to be channelled to and from buildings, across fields and along hollow ways..."

Luke Piper (b.1966). First major show was in 1992 at the CCA Dover Street gallery, which also featured work by his father Edward Piper (1928-1990) and grandfather John Piper (1903-1992) who were both artists. After studying at Frome College, Somerset he went on to read geography at Cambridge University. His studies led him to Melanesia on an anthropological assignment to study tribal warfare. Luke’s passion for capturing landscapes has taken him through Africa, Asia and Europe. This has nurtured a love of travelling and a deep interest in the human and physical aspects of our landscape which have remained with him throughout his painting career. “...exciting, colourful and dramatic, his work gets down the continuous rapid transformations on the face of the worlds landscape. The vibrant energy in the paintings reflects the resonance of colour and form between man made and natural features. The rectilinear arc of a quay in a Cornish natural harbour. A flat grey tin mine growing out of moorland gorse and bracken. Corsican citadels perched on the hills with passing storms. The blue paint of a distant farm exciting the yellow and green of farmland. The paintings are full of those plein air experiences that make him paint...” Jenny Perry writer and art historian www.lukepiper.com mail@lukepiper.com +44 (0) 1749 880 142 Exhibition Monday 8th June to Sunday 14th June 11am to 3pm daily The Tithe Barn  Pilton  Shepton Mallet  BA4 4EE (Use Glastonbury Festival main entrance on A361)

Luke Piper ‘An English Songline’ Following the Michael and Mary currents across England “...these paintings are about recording places along the route but not just as they would appear to a camera lens. For me, all these places, recognised throughout human time, have a spirit or wild energy. Whether urban or rural, churches or hill-forts, ruins or roads they are places where the force of life itself should be feared or revered. This draws us to these special places and along paths between them. It is this wild energy, shining through and radiating that I attempt to depict, represented as light. In most I use the white of the paper or canvas to represent the feeling of energies, radiating, glowing almost ghostlike from the subject in a manner that reminds me of the halo around the Saints' and Christ's image in churches and the corona around the sun itself. The paintings also illustrate the movement, flow and channelling of the Michael and Mary currents. Through composition, structure and in the growth of vegetation, the flow is seen to be channelled to and from buildings, across fields and along hollow ways..."
