John Whitehill



The overarching theme of John Whitehill’s painting is the built environment in various forms – buildings, urban views, parks and managed landscape. His recent work is still life informed by the built environment. John constructs and then paints from objects that are influenced by architectural models, model railway scenery or the spontaneously arranged structures a child might put together as a stage for play. These staged environments use readily available materials to fashion a setting that allows imagination and speculation to flow.
