Graham High’s North Sea paintings are a continuation of his earlier series Sea Passages. The artist’s interest lies in the perceptions of our surroundings and the sensations they trigger subconsciously. The viewer is allowed access to High’s personal point of reference, seeing through a periscope these new lands on the other side of the gallery wall. With names such as As If The Land Lost Concentration and The Persistent Illusion, the canvases are an attempt to make the ephemeral into something concretely understood. Using different textures and unexpected shapes, these are visions of reality as seen by the human eye; much felt, not necessarily materialised with an awareness of peripheral vision.
