Nick Viney Green with NV Studio Green with NV Studio
After spending some years living and painting in France I have returned to my family smallholding in the Walkham Valley on Dartmoor.
From animal behaviour to the rugged and remote High Moor, there are countless sources of my inspiration. Agriculture or rural life and the people I meet are often starting points but often abstracted beyond recognition or taken in a very different direction once the painting takes control.
I paint in oils and acrylics often on a LARGE scale and my sculptural projects are becoming an increasing focus of my attention.
I combine my painting with work as a ‘Range Clearer’ on the military firing ranges of Dartmoor. I work from horseback, with my sheep dogs to keep the stock from entering the Danger Areas during live firing.
The mix of Natures beauty, harshness of serious weather and the solitude are awesome.
I consider myself blessed to be surrounded by it all.
