David Poxon is admired the world over for the precision and craftmanship of his pure watercolour paintings. This book contains an eclectic collection of his most iconic works together with a section describing the artist's techniques. It is the most complete biography to date on this modern-day Master of the watercolour medium.
There is a growing number of documentary photographers who perform a vital service in preserving aspects of our socio-industrial heritage. Known as 'Urban Explorers', these tenacious artists follow in the anti-graphic tradition of Walker Evans, Henri Cartie-Bresson, and Manuel Alvarez Bravo. Over the years several of these modern explorers have become my friends and provided me with much source inspiration. We share a common vision and appreciation of things and places abandoned.
My medium of preference is watercolour, and I am a purist in the sense that mainly transparent pigment is used, and white paint avoided. I aim to record what is seen and felt in a subject as accurately and realistically as possible, believing that any finished painting should attempt to transcend a mere visual experience and reach out to the viewer in a stimulating, emotional, and engaging way.
