Preview evening Friday 16th May.
Robin Puplett has been painting since childhood but it is only recently that he has turned a lifelong passion for art into a full time career as an artist. Classically trained in both fine art and graphic design, Robin’s preferred medium is acrylic on canvas although he also enjoys working with oils or pencil.
Originally from London, Robin spent many years travelling and living abroad before finally settling down in Thirsk, North Yorkshire with his wife and two young children. Drawing inspiration from the scenes, landscapes and skies of the local area, and can often be found up on the North Yorkshire Moors or out in the villages sketching and photographing, always looking for the little details or big skies that make North Yorkshire such a wonderful place to live.
Robin works with acrylic paint on a canvas support, he says ” because I like the way acrylic dries fast which seems to suit my detailed style well. I also invest time into sketching and drawing as I find it the best way to keep my eye in and explore composition. All of my paintings start life as sketches on paper but I always keep them quick, loose and free from too much detail otherwise I seem to leave the energy in the sketch when I need to save it for the final painting.“
Spectrum are pleased to present a range of work from Robin, in various sizes and forms, mainly of the surrounding local area. We have a small selection in the gallery at present, and are looking forward to holding this exhibition of Robin’s work.
