Breckland Artists Member: Roger Gamble
Creative Medium: I paint almost entirely in acrylics, they are excellent for fine detail and there quick-drying properties are ideal for my way of working.
Q1. What artist has influenced you the most?
The artist who has inspired me most is probably Humphrey Ocean, although both David Hockney and Peter Blake are heroes of mine.
Q2. What is it that inspires you most in Norfolk?
I am inspired by the Breckland landscape, it's rows of twisted pines and wide skies, and also by it's people, in commonplace situations.
Q3. If you had to pick a favourite past artwork of yours what would it be?
It's difficult to pinpoint just one work of mine as favourite, but if pressed it would be The Girl Downstairs, which won me a major prize and helped to kick-start my career.
Q4. What are you working on at the movement?
At the moment I am in a transitional phase, still evolving my deconstructed landscapes, but often returning to the depiction of People, going about their everyday lives, but presenting interesting possibilities.
