About David Ringsell

The harmonious architecture of my home city Bath has inspired many recent paintings. I provide a contemporary take on classic architecture.

The work also includes dramatic landscapes from around the world including Tokyo, San Francisco and New Zealand.

These striking compositions are realistic but retain a painterly quality. Sometimes areas of the painting are left blank to emphasize the contrast between reality and its representation. There is a craftsman like attention to detail.

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 have previously exhibited my work extensively in the Bath area. I have exhibited as part of Larkhall Open Studios from 2009 to 2019. I was on the committee of the Open Studios for 4 years, where I designed and curated the artists’ website. My work has been shown in three Bath galleries. Also, at an exhibition at the Octagon where I won a prize for best painting. This prize was based on votes by the public.

“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.”
