About The Artist

Fred paints what is around him; that is still-lives of the jugs, bottles, fruit and such in the house, or flowers from the garden. For him, the best way to capture the nature of these things is to employ the expressive possibilities provided by oil painting.

Fred is also attracted to accuracy and detail which can often be achieved through drawing, so working in charcoal or pastel pencils is also important for him.

A concern for understanding the inner workings of things has always motivated Fred and this was evident in his studies. Gaining a B.Sc in Physics took him into the Aerospace industry and then looking for more insight, a Ph.D in Engineering took him into computing. On retirement, Fred wanted to take these concerns into the area of artistic activities and he realised that realistic painting in the traditional “atelier” manner would satisfy him best. This traditional approach to art allows a wide range of expression with great concerns for form,colour and tone.

Fred gained experience in painting and drawing by attendance on courses at various specialist Art Schools. These studies also created a fascination with both portraiture and figure-drawing, which he has maintained.

About The Artist

I’m an amateur artist living in West Berkshire.

I take my inspiration mainly from rural and coastal landscapes and the trans formative effects that seasonal and meteorological change have on these.

I have a particular fascination with human intervention on the landscape and the resulting tension between permanence and impermanence: ancient monuments and architectural ruins being a favourite theme. I am intrigued by the way these become absorbed into the surrounding environment over time, while maintaining some presence of their own.

I try to reflect this in the scale of the landscapes I paint and through the relationship between land and sky.

I work mainly in acrylics because I like the immediacy of the medium. I am a keen walker and always have my camera to hand for taking reference photographs, particularly in 'interesting' weather!
