Artwork > VILLAGES PERCHÉS

This series has grown my fascination for man's determination to build on challenging terrain or simply in elevated locations. Many of these artworks have been inspired by the rustic hilltop towns of France but not exclusively. Any settlement where the land has dictated the form and the layout of the architecture is visually very interesting for the artist.
These romantic paintings are created with a great deal of seductive texture, often featuring collage, impasto paint application and the opulent quantities of gold leaf.
