Richard Whadcock

Richard was invited to stay at Cill Rialaig, artists residences, in Kerry. Its strong influence is prominent in his paintings, returning every year since. Closer to home the South Downs and Sussex coastline have always been inspiration for the paintings. It is the amorphic nature of the landscape that he is looking to capture and the feeling of being in a landscape. Weather front’s rapidly change the look and feel of the landscape. Familiar detail can be expunged by a coastal mist, smudged away by a downpour or bleached out by intense low morning or evening sun. Feeding back into the way he manipulates the paint. It is these transitions from one state to another that the paintings are dealing with, small periods of time, not really a singular moment as such. The evocation of a place, perhaps in ones memories of somewhere you have been to. Recalling a feeling and sense of place during a passage of time.
