The paintings of Andrew Crocker are rooted in tradition, yet convey the mystery, drama and emotional tension of the modern day. The formal grandeur of his panoramic skies and rolling countryside subscribes to the conventions of English landscape painting, although Crocker often populates his landscapes with incongruous figures and contemporary allegory. Crocker has exhibited extensively across Europe and America and has work held in collections in East Asia and Australia. He has received commissions form the Ladbroke Group and Ernst & Young and was a finalist in the B.P. Portrait Awards held at the National Portrait Gallery in 1996.
