Paul Hirst

Paul Hirst is an artist/painter whose work examines the landscape and environments that surround him.

He graduated with a first class degree in Fine Art from the University of Derby. He lives and works in Derbyshire with his studio in Wirksworth in the Peak District.

Hirst is interested in the way we view and interpret the landscape and how it is informed by many factors, including our experiences, interests and imagination and the results of when these factors are combined with the reality of the natural environment.

The paintings are fleeting glimpses of the landscape; they derive from countless exposure to the raw elements and explore, question and challenge our ideas of the landscape genre.
