MARK RODDA
Artist at Stockroom

Landscape is never really about the actual land, it’s about what the viewer wants or expects to find in that particular place. It’s about the lure and mystery of a blurred horizon and the onlooker’s speculation over what some undefined shape in the distance may actually be.
