DAVID BAUMFORTH


David Baumforth was born in York in 1942 and paints the places he loves: the North Sea, its coastline and hinterland. He has painted intermittently since his youth and became a full time artist fourteen years ago. He has exhibited in a number of group and solo shows, ranging from the Mercer Art Gallery in Harrogate to the Royal Watercolour Society Summer Open in London and the Hunting Prizes Show at the Royal College of Art. Rarely using the so-called tools of his trade, he prefers to paint with rags, sticks and fingers rather than brushes. Baumforth is a painter of sea and landscape who stands foursquare and unapologetic in the Romantic Turnerian tradition, but, as his powerfully evocative works make clear, it is to the later Turner of the near-abstract, apparently unfinished canvases and the rapid free intuitive watercolour studies, all mist and light and spray, with strange forms emerging from the shadows, that he is always looking. William Packer, former Financial Times Art Critic
