KEVIN CURTIS, had successfully staged eleven consecutive exhibitions at the Picturecraft Gallery, Lees Yard, Holt, the last being almost a total sell out. Kevin lived in Laxfield near the picturesque Norfolk, Suffolk border. The majority of Kevinís paintings conveyed his love for the countryside of East Angliaís timeless landscape. Discovering hidden corners, derelict barns, old farm machinery and rain-filled ditches provides inspiration for subject matter. His portrayal of early morning mists or a landscaped bathed in the eerie light of a full moon have won him critical acclaim, a professional artist for over twenty years, he is recognised as being one of East Angliaís finest traditional painters in oil. Those familiar with Kevinís work remain enchanted and deeply appreciative of his tremendous ability to portray a great passion for the English countryside. An acute awareness in the play and mystery of light on the landscape is readily found in all of his paintings. Perhaps above all, it is reflections in puddles which hold a special fascination for Kevin, especially where, after a heavy rain shower, the tyres of a tractor have left their impression in the thick mud on a twisting country track.
