Richard Whadcock's contemporary landscape paintings capture the ever-changing atmospheres of the South Downs and Sussex coast. From silent stillness to squally days, the landscape itself is only a starting point, as a central theme is expanded on or developed based on a framework of memory and intuition. His works reflect a sense of place, with light, space and air becoming the central subject of each painting. Elements in the landscape are reduced to marks, lines and shapes with small subtleties expanding before the viewer.
Whadcock's works are collected both nationally and internationally and can be found in prestigious public and private collections. Cadogan Contemporary has been representing Richard Whadcock since 2019 and this will be his first solo exhibition with the gallery.
