Most of us have wandered about in these old places, touching a stone and musing for a moment on the ways of the old religions and our distant ancestors. Afterwards returning to our busy lives, the wild moorland just a flicker on our TV screen of memories.
Miles Heseltine however seems able to capture the very essence of place, like an alchemist he condenses and recreates the energy and resonance of this powerful landscape.

500mm x 1000mm, oil on canvas £1250
Heseltine has taken oil paint and made places speak, taken charcoal and graphite and given the elements a song. Magnificent drawings wrought within the landscape itself spread their arms across the walls of rooms and bring the land home with us.
There is no mystic misty fakery about these paintings, no new age magic, this is the real thing. An honest, uncompromising response to a beautiful, elemental landscape that speaks across millenia to our ancient memories.
