Artist in oil, watercolour and pastel, and teacher, born in Congleton, Cheshire. He studied at Stoke-on-Trent College of Art, 1947–51, with Arthur Berry and Arnold Machin, then Royal Academy Schools, 1951–4, under Henry Rushbury, William Dring and Gilbert Spencer. Went on to teach in Liverpool, Manchester, Carlisle and Birmingham Colleges of Art. In his own work Pass was “from 1957–69 concerned with landscape in a semi-figurative way. From 1969 onwards I was concerned with the transfiguration of landscape being motivated by the resurrection, with vast numbers of figures and black space with bands of gold.” He took part in mixed shows at Drian Galleries, New Art Centre, John Whibley Gallery, Graves Art Gallery in Sheffield, the University of Keele and Gallery of Art, Lissone, Milan.
