Rob Piercy is known mostly for his mountain landscapes,but recently his subject matter has become more comprehensive. This search for a wider topic for his painting is the result of a gradual move away from the topographical towards a more stylised approach. Greater emphasis is placed on certain visual elements, and how they are used in the construction of the painting, colour and texture in particular,rather than on the final product.
