Richard Tuff: Waterfronts

18th May - 7th June 2018

Richard Tuff: Waterfronts

Having exhibited with Beside The Wave Gallery since 1989, and sold to collectors all over the world,
Richard Tuff has gained a reputation as one of the most sought-after and admired landscape painters
currently working in the county. Richard's paintings and drawings of Cornwall celebrate simple scenes
of houses by rivers to the busy seascapes of St. Mawes and Falmouth.

Rendering the complexity of a view into abstract simplicity, and rebuilding it into a figurative image is
what Tuff does best. Unlike many landscape painters whose focus is on capturing the moment - and
particularly the light in a landscape- his work expresses a place 'in essence'. Almost the alchemist, Tuff
absorbs landscapes through repeated exposure to them and then draws them out layer by layer in the
studio.

Richard Tuff was born in Manchester in 1965. He completed a Foundation Art Course at Mid Cheshire
College of Art in 1985 and went on to gain a Degree in Textile Design at Winchester School Of Art.
Since graduating Richard has sold design work to many companies in England and abroad. His designs
have been used for the textile industry in America, Europe and Japan. He has also sold work to be
reproduced as magazine covers and card designs.

"To be able to experience the great contrasts of scenery is one of the great joys about living in
Cornwall; it is only a short trip from our home on the north coast to the peaceful creeks and sailing
waters of the South." - Richard Tuff

'Waterfronts' opens on Friday 18th May at Beside The Wave Falmouth and will run until Thursday 7th June.
