Indian artist Zil Hoque lives and works in London, but his greatest influence is Spain. His skilful oil paintings show a mastery of light, depicted in tonal colours drawn straight from the Andalucian landscape. Subjects are caught in motion. Displaying movement in one of Hoque's hallmarks. He also allows the texture of the paint to reveal the image. Light against dark creates a sense of drama.
He has said "it is never enough to see colour sitting on the canvas in a passive way, it has to move, illuminate and intrude our physical space."
