Richard Tuff: Favourite Places

After celebrating 30 years of representation at Beside The Wave last year with a collection of paintings from France, Spain and Morrocco, Richard has returned to painting his beloved Cornwall. 'Favourite Places' sees Richard exploring all over the county. From Boscastle and St. Ives on the North Coast to St. Levan, Helford, St. Mawes, Cadgwith, Fowey, Moushole, Portscatho and Port Navas.

This collection of beautifully balanced paintings simplifies and condenses the complexity of Cornwall's exceptional natural and built environment. In these works, the forms of densely packed cottages and fishing boats encapsulate a fundamental quality of the landscape with is described in deceptive simplicity in a language which is entirely Richard's own.

"Over the past 30 years I have explored many truly beautiful parts of Cornwall and as a painter I have been priviledged to spend time getting to know them intimately. I hope that this intimacy with my landscape gives the paintings a strength that can only come with time.

Throughout this time I have been drawn back to particular places again and again for different reasons. Some places have connections to my family life - we might often go for walks or days out, some places because of the memories that they hold and some places because I know that they make for a fantastic painting.

When I work back in the studio my paintings become a diffusion of these memories and connections alongside the physicality of the actual paint on the paper - the patterns, colours, shapes and rhythms that occur. " - Richard Tuff
