MARTIN PROCTER was born in Yorkshire in 1942, and moved to Devon in 1956. After a career in architectural design and building, he became a full-time artist in his early fifties. Self- taught, his work reflects his long-held interest in geography and man’s marks on the landscape, and his passion for remote hill country and wild places - Dartmoor, where he lives, the Celtic margins of Britain, and further afield in Arizona, the Atacama, Nepal, and the Polar regions. His paintings are informed by these travels, with ideas culled from reading, music, indigenous culture, and memory.He has had numerous solo and joint exhibitions, in galleries here in Britain and in the United States.
