Tobit Roche: Magic Mountains

Tobit Roche

The Art Stable presents the sixth solo exhibition of paintings by Tobit Roche.  Tobit’s romantic paintings convey his passion for nature and beauty.  In this exhibition, the colours are heightened, and the focus will be on the mountains of India, as well as Dorset’s smaller but much-loved Hambledon Hill.

“As a teenager growing up in India, I was often exposed to magical mountainscapes, particularly when journeying to the Himalaya, and its foothills or travelling by train through the Aravalli Range in Rajasthan. These memories have stayed with me, inspiring many subsequent visits, and not least turning India for me into a kind of spiritual home. In these recent paintings, I’ve tried to reconnect with this landscape of memories, and it is within the hills and mountains of India, that I find a compelling vehicle for self expression.” Tobit Roche

Born in Manchester in 1954, Tobit grew up in Hong Kong, Canada and India.  He attended the Ontario College of Art from 1974-6, coming into contact with ‘The Group of Seven’ painters and Camberwell School of Art from 1977-80.  Tobit then spent a year working alongside Duncan Grant at Charleston.
