About

Richard Cartwright

Richard Cartwright

Wales - b.1951

Richard Cartwright studied at Goldsmith’s College School of Art. He shortly decided against formal training dissatisfied ‘with the Twentieth Century obsession with art as a mere self-expression’ and set out alone aspiring to an art that is spiritual, transcendent and mysterious. He has long believed that a picture requires a melody of colour, light and form evident in his landscapes, nocturnes, nudes and interiors. Working predominantly in pastel – an unusual medium for such large paintings – each piece is characterised by an intense feeling of colour and atmosphere radiating from the careful layering of the medium.
