"My paintings aren't pictures of landscapes; they're paintings of the history of landscape painting, and a mirror held up to our damaging assumptions inherited from that history." Sholto Blissett, Floorr Magazine

Sholto Blissett constructs surreal landscapes, perfectly fabricated with symmetrical topiary and classically inspired columns. Blissett’s paintings are manicured to perfection. Eerily quiet, his scenes are often set amongst vast mountain-scapes, immediately enveloping the viewer in a meditative and transformative universe. His paintings are suffused with the tension between human attempts to modify nature, and nature’s resistance to these contortions.

Sholto Blissett (b. 1996) received an MA in painting from the Royal College of Art and a BA in Geography from Durham University. He currently lives and works in London and is represented by Hannah Barry Gallery, London and Alexander Berggruen, New York.
