Gerald Shepherd – Selected Work: Alone On A Hill (Bury Hill 2)

This is a fairly characteristic portrait improvisation where shapes based on figures and parts of figures sequentially evolve, this time in a spiral pattern – a technique I have been working on since about 1976.  However the structure enclosing the symbol variations is actually derived from an earlier landscape which is itself derived from a local hill and beauty spot.  I fancifully imagined the hedgerows forming a spiral going up to the summit when seen from the air.  Unfortunately I still can’t fly, even though I have been trying since a child, and the photograph was found on the internet.  The landscape has tree variations – again typical of my work
