Richard Whadcock has many art exhibitions throughout the year, both in London and in Brighton. These are a fantastic opportunity to not only see his work but also to meet the artist himself.
Richard studied fine art painting and printmaking at Bristol Polytechnic and then went on to complete his Masters at the Royal College of Art in 1989-91. He then moved to Brighton and initially established his studio at Phoenix Brighton and is now based at the Red Herring Studios in Hove. A residency at Lowick House Print Workshop in Cumbria in 1996 further developed his printmaking but also led to painting coming more to the fore and becoming his main area of development. The methods and qualities of printmaking have continued to filter into his way of working through a painting's development. From the many layers of re-drawn etching plates and velvety line of a dry point to the direct mark making that appealed in lithography. These all work together to form the painting's feeling, atmosphere and presence.
"Richard Whadcock is a landscape painter but not in the usual way. The paintings seem to come out of the wall and hug you in mists. So beautiful."
