‘Cycling Home’ is a Giclée Print by acclaimed British artist Simon Palmer. Printed onto 310gsm Cotton Rag Paper, the print is from a limited edition of 850 and is hand numbered and embossed.
Simon Palmer is an acclaimed, contemporary artist, whose work details scenes of the British landscape. Bearing the traces of Eric Ravillious and Paul Nash, Palmer’s work revels in palettes of soft, woody greens and earthy browns, favouring a non-linear perspective which perfectly captures the undulations of the Yorkshire Dales or the labyrinthine layout of a meandering forest.
‘Cycling Home’ depicts a wintry afternoon in the countryside: a lone cyclist edges his way up a steep, countryside path, flanked by rolling hills, hedgerows, and a picturesque low bridge. Leafless tree branches hover against an ice-white sky, offering an honesty to the English countryside, even in its most barren beauty.
