Extract from  John Marsh artist statement

Painting is a hobby I really enjoy and become completely engrossed in once the brush is in my hand! My favourite subject is landscapes, and I can see my life – which has been ‘touched by polio’ for over 60 years – as itself a kind of landscape.

Perhaps looking at these zany ‘canvases’ you may be able to see what I’m getting at, linking these legs and torsos to the landscape. A bit unusual? Well, so is life ‘touched by polio’ – but it’s worth working at!
