Craig Underhill makes work in response to landscapes and places visited and travelled through. His recurring interest is natural landscapes that have human interventions that tell a story about our relationship with the natural world. He is particularly influenced by the inconsequential visual effects that are created in landscapes by the repetitive and methodical actions of humankind. The coastline continues to be a strong visual stimulus but the mundane, overlooked and apparently ordinary landscape can also serve as a rich source of inspiration. Underhill's definition of landscape is not necessarily a large scale open vissta, it can also be seen on a small scale and more intimate level. He makes his paintings in conjunction with his ceramics and find that working in one medium helps to inform the other.
