‘The two oil paintings of 1988 I have always thought of as a ‘paean’ to the North Sea and a tribute to Ben Britten with especial reference to his ‘Sea Interludes’ from Peter Grimes, the beauty of which is ever associated with the North Sea. The paintings are heavily impastoed to convey the power of the maritime scene as I have witnessed it at all seasons from the windows of a friend’s house on the Aldeburgh seafront. My personal association with Peter Pears and Ben Britten has informed every brush-stroke of these works.’
(Keith Grant, statement, June 2014)
