David Brightmore – “A Yorkshireman, I studied Business Management in Cardiff and Fine Art in Sheffield. I lived in Snowdonia from 1985 until 2004 and learned the Welsh language. I now live in Mold , close to the Clwydian range.
I have run and walked most of the mountains and hills here and though my landscape paintings and drawings are rarely specific to one recognisable place, they endeavour to express certain essential dramatic and lyrical qualities of the North Wales environment
A full-time painter since 2000, I am told that my work is vibrant and energetic. It involves a searching for the rhythms of land and figure, a theme which I developed in my M.A. Fine Art course at Glyndwr University, N.Wales in 2011. I have exhibited in galleries and Art Fairs throughout the UK.. and in 2016 I was accepted as member of Royal Cambrian Academy
During the last two years I have produced over forty paintings related to the pandemic; from a series entitled ‘Virus-man’, I moved on to ‘Out of the woods’, then as the vaccination programme progressed my next more optimistic series was ‘C’mon, let’s go !‘ and now my current series is entitled ’Shining through’.”
