John Piper first showed his paintings in St Ives in the late 60’s. Since this time, he has exhibited his work widely throughout England, as well as on the continent, in both solo and mixed shows.

He is essentially a landscape painter. He makes small sketches and written notes during walks across the Penwith Moors and uses these as a basis for paintings completed in the studio.

Texture, colour and form determine the eventual outcome of the preliminary studies. Granite cottages, barns, outcrops of rock, blackthorn trees and heavy skies are his constant themes.

All of John Piper’s paintings are produced in oils, often on board, with larger paintings generally on canvas. In both cases the emphasis is on glazes of colour laid one upon the other. Sometimes earlier drawing is allowed to show through; whilst at other times the work is deeply scratched and scraped, providing an intensity of depth and colour.
