MJ Forster Original Watercolour Paintings
Born in 1975, Matthew Forster has had a pencil glued to his right hand since he was 8 and has been creating and selling watercolours since 1989. Based in Hexham, Northumberland he explores Britain's most beautiful landscapes which are the source of his inspiration. Watching the video of Matt Forster creating a piece of art is truly amazing. He seems to preconceive each contour and curve in his mind and using one colour at a time he paints fluently over the white paper as if he was printing a screen print.
In his own words; "The paintings have a very graphic quality; they are designed rather than painted. Initially the paintings have a perceived simplicity; this is a very complex effect to achieve. I paint within a self-created set of imposed rules. I liken the work to a sonnet in the sense that they are created within a restrictive framework and out of that limitation a greater creativity emerges."
