Guy Warren, at the remarkable age of 100, is older than all many artists in the art history canon mentioned, and has lived through several lives both as a man and as a painter. His pictures view the world with a corresponding sense of distance and perspective, and with a combination of meditative detachment and innocent wonder. The paintings are landscapes, but they are lightly brushed in, as though capturing memories or fleeting impressions. There are deserts, rocky mountains, forests and paths winding among the trees, but they are reduced to an abbreviated, almost symbolic notation, as are human artefacts such as a house or a boat.
