"Slabs of colour and texture inter-penetrate on the diagonal to create energetic and forceful compositions".

"Ashton uses all the experiments of modern art alongside the aesthetics that made the Old Masters great. He wants to take modern painting forward. His work is complex, multi-layered and sophisticated and has wide appeal".
Great site! Lays out your work so well - and the paintings are even more stunning and inspirational than they were when our paths crossed all those years ago (>20?).
Warmest hugs, Roy & Julie

Hi Tony. As well as testing the guestbook, let me say it has been a privilige to design your site. Looking through your paintings whilst getting the pages together made it a very interesting project. I think my favourite paintings are The Music Lesson and The Sun.
