Alan Cotton is one of Britain's most distinguished
Landscape Painters. Cotton was brought up in Redditch, Worcestershire and
undertook his art studies at Ruskin Hall, Bournville School of Art, Birmingham
College of Art, Birmingham University and at the University of Exeter.
He has channelled his success into many charitable works, including his 2013
Art for Life Auction for the Children’s Hospice South West.
Cotton’s relationship with oil paint is the key to his now
immediately recognisable and internationally sought-after work. His
understanding of the medium's allure, challenges and caprices translate into
assertively textured landscapes that join impasto with atmospheric perspective.
Executed in high colour keys, these paintings retain a purity of pigment that
is exceptionally difficult to retain in oil.
