Drawing inspiration from the shapes and form of the ancient rocks, trees and gullies, together with the birds and animals that live there, each compelling work exudes energy, originality and a sense of spirit and mystery inherent in the primeval subjects themselves. With a naturalist’s eye of observation, the paintings echo the artist's passion and skill and often draw the viewers' attention to a particular element in the landscape rather than the ‘big picture’ view.
Describing his work GuyTroughton says: “I am absorbed by the lyrical and abstract textures of the bush - a gnarled branch, a jagged rock, a shaft of light or a pool of water. Equally, I am inspired to explore man’s intrinsic relationship to these elements.” Although Guy says that painting outdoors presents many challenges, he relishes the spontaneity and vitality it brings to his work: “I conceived and painted much of the work perching on a rock or cliff. Painting quickly, I was intent on capturing the light, mood and transience of the moment. At the same time, I was deeply conscious of the timelessness of the landscape and the stories and history that lay hidden within.”
