Michael Norcross : Paintings and prints draw on a wide range of subject matter, some of which is very local, an interest in colour, luminosity, mood, atmosphere and shadows. Recent work involves landscapes from the immediate vicinity of his Caversham Studio. Others evoke more complex ideas, some of which have implied narrative elements. Several recent works have local references. The painting of the magnificent cup and saucer Magnolia Tree, which can be found in the grounds of Queen Anne's School, or the Park Life series derived from local scenes in the local Christchurch meadows, Caversham, by the River Thames in Reading. These can been seen in The Picture Framer shop in Caversham.email@example.com.
