Employed in the coal mining industry for over 25 years, North East artist Derek Slater has developed a keen interest in how the miner has been portrayed throughout the eras.
Coal mining is an industry that has inspired many artists including Turner, Lowry, and closer to home, the Ashington Group. Throughout his own paintings, Derek endeavours to capture the miner in his working environment, often in cramped and hazardous conditions.
