About the Artist

Steve Capper attended Manchester’s High School of Art in 1955, at the age of eleven years, followed by the Manchester College of Art in 1962 and then Bretton Hall College in 1965.

He taught painting for thirty years as head of a large art faculty in an Oldham comprehensive school, before taking early retirement in 1996 to concentrate on producing his own work.

The artist lives and works near Oldham, in the Pennines, and these hills have had a major influence on his work.  The hills and valleys, together with the man-made environs, produce simple, individual shapes which combine to form more complex images.  Moreover, the shapes and patterns provide an ideal vehicle for the artist’s work with colour; his use of primary colours both enhances and emphasises the fascinating aspects of this special environment.

He produces on-the-spot sketches which are then taken into his studio where he re-works them into a painting.  Both his landscapes and his still-life paintings reflect the influences of the cubists and the fauves.
