Richard Clare’s beautiful landscape paintings of urban and wilderness scenes, on display at Doughty Street Chambers and for sale in aid of the Kalisher Trust.
Doughty Street Chambers and the Kalisher Trust are hosting an exhibition of paintings by the award-winning artist Richard Clare during July 2013.
For this fundraising exhibition, which supports the work of the legal charity the Kalisher Trust, Richard Clare has put together a collection of 45 paintings featuring the dramatic moorland of northern England, seascapes, the hot summer days of Italy and France, and urban London. Come on a colourful journey – visit this vibrant contemporary exhibition at Doughty Street Chambers at open afternoons on 4th and 7th June from 2pm to 5pm. Further viewings can be made by appointment, until the 31st July.
Inspired by the French Impressionists, Abstract Expressionists and the Scottish Colourists, Richard’s work echoes their shape and form via colour and bold mark-making. In addition to vibrant colour, light quality plays a huge part in his work; Richard divides his time between Barga, a medieval hilltop town in Northern Tuscany, the Italian/French Riviera and a studio base in northern England.
Richard has been fascinated by landscapes from a very early age. Most weekends were spent with a sketchbook in hand walking the moors and dales of the Peak District and Yorkshire. Since those early days of discovery, Richard worked for more than fifteen years in the graphics industry before becoming a full-time artist in 1998.
“Strong use of colour always plays a major role in my work, it is what links my wide subject matter, from cityscapes to the landscapes of northern England, Italy and France, whether plein air painting or studio-based work. I want to create my own colourful world in my paintings!” says Richard.
He has received media attention in national magazines, and has won several awards, including finalist in a competition organised by The International Artist magazine, where over 3000 entries were received from all over the world. His paintings are in private collections throughout Britain, Europe, the USA and Australia.
