Richard Clare
acrylic on board and box canvas

Inspired by the French Impressionists, Abstract Expressionists and the Scottish Colourists, Richardís 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. In this collection of Peak District inspired paintings Richard paints from imagination and emotional recollection of where he has been walking and sketching for many years interpreting rather than copying the landscape.  Back in his studio in Delph he produces his paintings using vibrant colours in acrylics and oils, applied predominantly with painting knives, on to board and large box canvases creating paintings with bold definitions and striking details of the Derbyshire Peaks and Moorlands.

The Bright Field by RS Thomas

I have seen the sun break through
to illuminate a small field
for a while, and gone my way
and forgotten it.  But that was the
pearl of great price the one field that had
treasure in it. I realise now
that I must give all that I have
to possess it. Life is not hurrying
on to a receding future, nor hankering after
an imagined past. It is the turning
aside like Moses to the miracle
of the lit bush, to a brightness
that seemed as transitory as your youth
once, but is the eternity that awaits you.
