ROGER CURTIS

Roger studied painting at Birmingham College of Art and Design. He has exhibited work in Birmingham, Bristol and London, including at the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours, The Royal West of England Academy and the Royal Society of Marine Artists. In 1993 he won the ‘ Wellingborough Open ‘ competition. His work is in collections around the world. Roger’s work is firmly rooted in the landscapes and seascapes of the South West Cornwall. ‘ This is a special place for any painter, the light seems to reverberate in the moist air blowing in from the atlantic. Of course it changes constantly, as do the tides, the weather, the coming and going of boats, animals and people, nothing in this landscape is static for more than a few minutes. I enjoy the challenge of trying to record transitory events; shadows, reflections, people, birds and the movement of the sea. ‘
