About the artist
Gerry Halpin is an award winning contemporary artist from Lancashire. He was awarded an MBE for his services to charity and the arts and is currently the President of the Manchester Academy of Fine Artists.
Of his recent work of semi-abstract aerial landscapes he says:
"Seeing the world from above rather than being in it and looking across, brought an exciting new challenge in ways of observing and recording the landscape. Looking down on the world meant that I could see the ordinary features of a landscape in an extraordinary way and I had to find new methods of painting in order to represent that new perspective.
These unique paintings, which I thoroughly enjoy creating, have opened up new areas of success for my artistic career. New collectors, prestigious exhibition venues and winning major prizes, have all encouraged me to continue developing this work"
