Medium: Painting

Profile

Richard Gibson is a painter based in Bath who paints bold, vivid paintings of the natural world, and as he is a keen gardener much of his subject matter comes from his garden.

He studied painting at Northumbria University and has exhibited at The Bishop’s Palace, Wells, Trebah Garden, Cornwall, in numerous Art Fairs as well as at various local art events.

 He has developed a style that  is based on observational study whilst endeavouring to embody the vitality and dynamic of nature. The paintings are executed in oil paint allowing for a “painterly” physical technique with bold backgrounds bringing the subject into strong relief producing a powerful sense of presence. The work is informed by his drawings, which are often executed in charcoal and conte crayon and are also boldly executed in a vigorous style with an almost sculptural technique.
