In an art world in the North increasingly dominated by Lowry-inspired paintings full of people and buildings, Steve Capper stands apart with his bold and contemproray use of vibrant colour and his eschewing of traditional motifs. He focuses on the shapes and patterns formed by the clouds, hills and fields surrounding him and emphasises the simplicity of form with the bold and occasionally surreal use of primary colours, creating traditional landscapes painted in a unique way, and still lifes full of vibrancy. Sitting comfortably somewhere between representational and abstract, Steve has achieved that rare feat in the Northern Art World – his paintings are instantly recognisable and indisputably his own.
