As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.
Henry David Thoreau
Oshe, aka Stu Watkin, was evidently influenced by his daily exposure to the poster advertising Liverpool Overhead Railway which adorned the kitchen wall of his childhood home. The noise, dirt and pace of the environment were subdued by limited but vibrant colours. Emotions of ‘being there’ seemed quite possible. Using a similar approach he presents views in which the complexities of real life are reduced to a simplified vision. Peripheral elements are removed and colours limited, leaving the viewer to enjoy visions of form without distraction. The results offer vistas with more a sense of place rather than time.
