My friend Millie first showed me the work of Geoff Litherland late last year. Since then I've been following his work and am inspired by his process and combination of media to tell a narrative to the viewer.
I've selected some of my favourite pieces of his and shared them below. The aspect to his work that find particularly inspiring at the moment is his sense of scale and presenting work to the viewer. Geoff currently has work on display at Tarpey Gallery and his solo show 'Opening the Gates' showcases his new and exciting body of work.
I have always been drawn to how Geoff uses circles and mark making within his work. This piece combines a strong and confident use of line which echo this idea of another universe and geometry. This provides a sense of space and continuity as the eye is drawn to the centre of the work.

I was looking through some of Geoff's older work and came across this beautiful piece. I find this work very grounding and how he has used layering and media to create the idea of adventure and spontaneity is very effective. The work invites the viewer into the piece because of how media has been applied.
