We are pleased to present ‘Casting Light’, an exhibition of works by David Walker and Claire Wiltsher.

About

Claire Wiltsher was born in Wales and studied at both Lancashire and Northumbria Universities. In 2010 she received the ‘Rosemary and Co’ Society of Women Artists annual award and was selected for the 2010 Royal Society of Marine Artists exhibition at the Mall Galleries.
Her oil and mixed media canvases combine layers of paint with fragments of collage. She scratches through sections of the painting to allow colours from underneath to emerge.

“I want to create evocative paintings of land and sea that show a sense of place; different weather conditions are key elements”. 

David Walker trained and practiced as an architect before becoming an award winning artist. As a painter, therefore, David’s work is primarily concerned with the built environment. The play of light and atmosphere on the manmade forms of our cities. David is a three times winner of the Frank Herring award at both the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, as well as a recipient of the Rowland Hilder award and ‘The Artist’ magazine award.

‘’The works in this exhibition are concerned with my ongoing fascination with the built environment and in particular, London, it’s atmospheres, moods and forms. The paintings aim to express a kind of curious beauty of the everyday, and record glimpses as almost abstract compositions of colour, light and form. They centre around an optimistic view of a changing city and therefore the subjects are often fleeting and momentary.’’
