His take on the landscape has always been different, infused with modernist concerns with abstraction and intense expressiveness. Nonetheless, seeing his latest prints at N orth House Gallery, overlooking the Suffolk Stour estuary, a few miles downstream from Constable country, reminds one of Ackroyd's profound sense of contemporary place within a long and significant British landscape tradition.
