David K Ridley

David K Ridley hails from Northhamptonshire and recieved his degree in Fine Art from Sheffield Hallam University in 2011.  Since graduating university He has exhibited at a variety of shows throughout the UK notably 'Grand Designs Live London' and 'The Affordable Art Fair'. He has worked on numerous projects with art consultants and interior designers, including the likes of Fiona Barratt Interiors and world renowned Candy & Candy.

Drawing upon elements of abstraction his paintings seek to capture the atmospheric and transient qualities of the landscape- contemporizing the traditional landscape. Through an alternation of line, colour and texture each painting takes on its own unique setting. Intuitive yet considered he wants his paintings to portray a raw energy and sense of mystery where each individual viewer can form their own perspective on the work. Rather than replicating an image he seeks to evoke the aura of a place, to capture an atmospheric scene or moment in time-  immersing the viewer in a sense of space and timelessness.
