This new body of 42 paintings continues the sequence of works made exploring the north Norfolk coast at Blakeney Point. John Virtue continues his practice of once weekly walks along the coastline in all weathers. Making studies in pocket sketchbooks, which go towards the finished paintings in acrylic on canvas and linen. Continuing the tradition of painting the sea, which passes from Turner, Constable to Courbet, these works combine the sentiment of abstraction not dissimilar to the approach of Pollock and Kline with the gestural tradition to be found in Japanese calligraphic painting.
