David Ringsell

David's next major exhibition is in the West Gallery (zone B) of the Royal United Hospital, Bath BA1 3NG from 19th January till 31st March 2019. Opening Times: Mon-Sun 8am-8pm. The exhibition title is New Views on Familiar Places. It will focus on the power of painted images to make the viewer look with fresh eyes.

The harmonious architecture of his home city Bath has inspired many recent paintings. He provides a contemporary take on classic architecture. There is a craftsman like attention to detail.

These dramatic compositions are realistic but retain a painterly quality. Sometimes areas of the painting are left blank to emphasise the contrast between reality and its representation.

The works are created in mixed media by combining acrylic paint, pen and pencil. The underlying pencil marks used to draw the composition remain visible in places. This adds a dynamic quality to the work that reveals its creation process.

"I aim to present a contemporary perspective on some familiar places. I often focus on the darker side of Bath architecture; peeling paint and stained stonework."

Also take a look at drawings and photographs.
