Available NOW as WRATH, RUIN AND A RED NIGHTFALL: The Art of John Cockshaw by Oloris Publishing and Amazon.


Welcome to the blog and this collection of original artwork inspired by The Lord of the Rings and J.R.R Tolkien's wider mythology of Middle-earth. Aside from the influence of the source writing of Tolkien influence is also drawn from Director Peter Jackson's film trilogy (2001-2003) and the highly regarded Tolkien illustrators Alan Lee and John Howe. The magnificent musical score written for the film trilogy by Howard Shore also holds a significant influence upon the atmospheric and evocative quality of the works in this collection. From Mordor to the Misty Mountains combines landscape, miniature-scale and composite photography to depict locations, dramatic scenes and characters from the enduringly popular stories.

Exhibition at CURZON RIPON to tie in with The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (12A)

20th December 2013 - 3rd January 2014

A selection of pieces from 'From Mordor to the Misty Mountains' on show at Curzon Ripon to coincide with the two week screening of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (12A)



This exhibition had been pending as a possible idea for a short time and as a fantastic and brand new local venue (opening only in November) it was with great pride to be able to hang a selection of pieces from the collection to coincide with the cinema's two-week run of the second chapter of The Hobbit trilogy.

Many thanks to Manager Penny Hartley (inc. James Hare and Bev Isherwood)
