Alastair Lovett is based in the North East of England.
His work reflects his fascination with the marks people make on their environment, as well as the entropy – the inevitable decline and degeneration – of structures over long periods of time.
He works directly from observation, often seeking out difficult to access places from which to work. Alastair is largely self-taught, but received instruction and guidance for several years from Wolfe Lenkiewicz. As a wood engraver he has exhibited nationally with the Society of Wood Engravers.
Alastair’s work is held in private collections across the UK as well as the permanent collection of Durham University.
