Tony Caunce is an English painter and video artist currently based in Sheffield. In an artistic practice spanning three decades, he has explored landscape and studio painting, drawing, video, installation and performance.
In his current work he uses computer software in the development of images, which he then executes on large canvases using traditional or invented painting techniques. Through this process he investigates the relationship between traditional painting and digital media.
Although having a Western academic art education, Caunce has a particular fascination for East Asian culture and finds influences in Daoism, Buddhism and traditional Chinese music.
