Richard Slater R.I.

Richard Slater was born in London in 1927. He attended Hornsey School of Art, which led to a long career teaching at the College of St Mark and St John, first in Chelsea and then in Plymouth. Moving to East Cornwall in 1973, he became a member of St Ives Society of Artists. He has won numerous awards and commissions and was elected to the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour.

Richard is a wonderful exponent of the post 1945 English romanticism with a rare ability to express that style across a range of mediums. His work shows great dexterity with a wonderful fusion of abstracting the landscape, cutting it into little blocks, and putting it together again.

Over his many years of painting, he has produced a wide spectrum of work which is demonstrated with the works on display in this exhibition.

Richard continues to paint most days, with the raw visual materials for his work found on walks, when he gathers aspects of topography in sketchbooks and then back in the studio, those sketches are brought together to create an impressionistic vision.

Exhibition Runs from 19th -29th April
