The painter Paul Klee described art as ‘taking a line for a walk’. Perhaps. Dave Fieldhouse, though, takes the eyes and heart on a great journey. His images are at once strikingly fresh and new, yet wonderfully nostalgic. They are multi-faceted scenes that evoke precise amd special moments captured in beautiful places, yet often captured from refreshing angles or perspectives. The image above offers an ethereal woodland scene, wreathed in early morning mist. Treetops emerge like rocks from the sea, trunks like storm-wracked ships masts. It transports me to that place, to revel in the freedom of wild beauty. Stunning.
