"Somehow because we travel so
much, and try to see so much, we lose that absolute intimacy with our own

Paul Kessling paints outdoors, immersing himself in the landscape. His
journey has seen him return time and time again to a particular place on the
Downs, a place that continues to intrigue and inspire him. He calls it ‘The
Private Road’ and it is an old farm road lined with ivy-covered pine trees that
traverses a small valley below the ancient Ridgeway.
roads go deeper, and I have been returning to this place to paint for
more than ten years. The trees of the Private Road preside over a modern
agricultural landscape like Easter Island statues. Behind and above them sit
Grim’s Ditch and the Ridgeway; a prehistoric earthwork and an ancient trackway –
Britain’s oldest road. The trees stand as sentinels to a rich farming past that
has been replaced with vast fields worked by modern machines which lay bare the
undulations of the earths’ surface.” Paul Kessling
