"i like to convey that idea of movement, that might be in the stillness of landscapes"
Joe Furlonger, 2014.
"Restlessly creative, Furlonger draws every day - he draws incessantly, with pencil, charcoal, brush, pen or crayon. He has filled countless sketchbooks and completed a large body of works on paper. These drawings are both preparatory studies for paintings and self-sufficient works of art. The quick, spontaneous transfer of his observations onto paper is at the heart of all Furlonger's artistic activities, from painting and printmaking to ceramics and sculpture."
John McDonald, 2002, New Contemporaries.
