The Ripe Field

The Ripe FieldMost of Crozier's recent paintings dwell on the Irish landscape, or more specifically, the landscapes of West Cork, near Ballydehob and Toe Head, where the artist has a house and studio. He works rapidly, applying bright, contrasting colours with expressive brushstrokes. His approach to landscape painting can be seen to have taken inspiration from eastern as much as western art, for instance in the actual pictorial devices employed, such as the raising of the horizon line to the top of the painting and the rejection of Renaissance space in favour of a perspective that respects the picture plane.
