The challenge for the artist is either to add enough detail or in some cases to strip back all but the essential elements so as to continue the narrative.
Gary Dewhurst's work is a process of such distillation, often choosing the bleak, wide open spaces of both physical and emotional landscape for his journeys.
Having chosen a musical path, a long way from a past of dense electric band based rock, towards the sparse, honest, simplicity of his carefully chosen words underpinned by the fragile shimmering beauty of his cascading fingerstyle acoustic guitar, Gary asks only that the listener is willing to join him on the journey for a short while.
Similarly, his photography speaks of beauty in the cold northern light and the fleeting moments of the spectacular in both the small things as well as the wide open horizon
