Roger aims to express the underlying patterns in the landscape generated by his interest in geology and geography, but the interpretations are not intended to be fully representational. He finds particularly interesting the landscapes in areas of transition between lowland and upland, and sea and land, with features such as hill farms marking past and present human activity, field patterns and rock outcrops. His interpretation is based on a feeling for a landscape rather than what is seen, its past heritage and land uses, and he aims to abstract the structure of the land set within an impressionistic background. Subjects depict his local area of Northamptonshire and the Midlands, but also extend to all parts of England and Wales.
