Dorset Landscapes

These paintings are all contemporary landscapes, mostly in oils. Interpreting and painting the Dorset landscape is a major focus in Dick's work and the purbeck coastal landscape paintings are of key significance.

Many of the paintings of the Purbeck coast demonstrate Dick's interest in the underlying 'skeleton' of the landscape, and reference both the geological events and processess which first formed the coastal land, and also the ways that human activities have shaped what is visible today. In many of these works he also explores movement and erosion in the landscape, processess which are now likely to increase in intensity as climatic instability continues.
