Inspirations From the Natural World
Not only inspired by the Peak District, Michael Claxton also travels the UK coastline frequently. He makes sure to return to the same areas through different points in the year. The simple yet awe-inspiring changes of the seasons serve as a driving force behind his creativity. In these repeating, cyclical patterns is a duality: constant change and simplicity. It is the beauty in this mix of the startlingly simple and the overwhelmingly fluid that you will find throughout Michael Claxton's work.
