Tor Falcon

Tor is a landscape artist based in Norfolk and Cumbria. Educated at Norwich School of Art (BA Hons, Fine Art Painting) her work is very much rooted in the English Landscape tradition. She uses drawing as a way of understanding the essentials of a particular landscape. There is an underlying geological rhythm and there is local flora dictated by that geology. There is the effect man has had and there is local climate and time of year. Whether it’s a wind sculpted sycamore repeating the shapes of hills next to a remote northern farmhouse, or tram lines through three hundred acres of East Anglian barley and one stag headed oak tree in the distance, each landscape has it’s own identity. A set of shapes and colours that are repeated through it. Tor’s sets of small pastel drawings are her way of understanding what makes a place the way it is.
