Roy Wright PS 

Education/Career

"Many of my recent drawings have been concerned with depicting the trees I see on my walks in Richmond Park, Kew and the surrounding area.   I feel inspired by the physical and powerful presence of these beautiful natural forms.   I'm often drawn to the bark of an old oak or try to capture, for example, snow clinging to the trunks and branches after snow storms.   There is a great satisfaction that can be gained from hours spent in close scrutiny of a tree.   There is something extraordinary about the relationship between ourselves and trees.   The need to be close to nature, walking through forests renewing our spirits with their beauty and the constantly changing seasons."

Roy has taken part in many group shows, including the Cheltenham Open Drawing, Drawings & Watercolours Fair, New English Art Club, Laing Landscape Competition , Messum's, London Art Fair, 20/21 British Art Fair, Art DC Washington USA, Hunting Art Prizes, AA Fair NYC New York, Rebecca Hossack Gallery, Roman Black Gallery, Thompson's, Martin's Gallery, Art on Paper Fair, Fine Art & Antiques Fair, Kew Gardens Gallery, Art London, Southampton City Art Gallery, Art Melbourne Australia, Orleans House Gallery and the RA Summer Exhibitions of 2000, 2001, 2004, 2006, 2007 and 2011 (shortlisted 2008 and 2010).
