Collection: Richard Whadcock

Richard is one of the UK’s leading atmospheric landscape painters. He has shown widely in the UK and the USA.

Richard studied on a general fine art course at Bristol Art College from 86-89. This gave him a solid grounding in painting and printmaking. At this stage printmaking was at the fore. This lead him to undertake a Masters Degree in Printmaking at the Royal College of Art from 89-91 working in intaglio and later in lithography. The nature of lithography also started to draw him back to painting as well.

Printmaking involved a process which gave a working structure which then found transposed itself into Richards approach to painting. From the preparation of a painting surface, hand wiping etching plates to hand wiping the paintings themselves. The work involved parring down to the bare essentials while leaving enough for the image to work.

Early influences, influences that have stayed with him until present day, are artist such as Cy Twombly, Robert Motherwell, Milton Avery to Vermeer, Turner and Rembrandt. Elements of all have been introduced into his work. With the Rembrandt's it was the backgrounds allowing the paintings to emerge from dark to light. Turners handling of atmosphere which lived in the paintings and the gestural from Twombly and Motherwell.
