From John Martin Gallery in London, where John Caple has exhibited for over 20 years: 

"John Caple’s art remains woven into the landscape and history of Somerset as well as the rich tradition of poetry, folklore and magic that has held firm in Mendip.  These are paintings built on the collective memory of generations who shared a profound connection to the natural world. It was their voice which resonates through the poetry of Coleridge, who lived on the Quantock Hills, Wordsworth and then Shelley, Keats and Emily Dickinson and it was in their poetry that John Caple turned to find another way of reaching into the landscape, most recently in exhibitions that used Shelley’s visionary language as a starting point for his paintings."
