David Atkins Artist information:

The Fairfax Gallery have been privileged to work with David Atkins exhibiting his paintings since our opening Exhibition in 1995, closely following his success with critics and collectors alike over the years. David’s confident painterly use of oils marks him out as an artist with a future as vibrant as his paintings.

David Atkins has selected a hand finished contemporary white frame to offset the compositions. The beauty of the original paintings is the rich textural qualities of the oil, which tends to look flat in reproductions.

David Atkins says of his paintings:

'In my recent paintings, I have revisited and explored the landscape of the Ashdown Forest and the Dorset coastline. Throughout the Spring and Summer, I have explored the light, colour and drama that has unfolded along the coastline. Fisherman and sailors heading out to sea, walkers along a beach on a blustery day, high tides, blue summer mornings and harbour lights in the evening. As Summer moved into Autumn, I explored the forest landscape and its fine views observing the colours as they started to deepen. The blue smoke from distant bonfires, grazing sheep, pink and purple heather, horseriders and ramblers all became part the view from the Ashdown'. David Atkins has exhibited with the Fairfax Gallery since its opening exhibition in 1995 at its gallery on The Pantiles
