THE RETURN OF THE PAINTER: DAVID BAUMFORTH

A new collection for 2019
Contemporary Depictions of the North.
 
Launch event at According to McGee gallery, York, Saturday 22nd June, 12pm.
 
Internationally well regarded painter David Baumforth returns to his native York for his only solo show of 2019 with his latest collection of portraits of the North East coast.
This is an open invitation to the exhibition launch here at According to McGee gallery, opposite Clifford's Tower, York, 22/06/19, 12pm - 4pm.
 
The rumours of Painting's demise have been greatly exaggerated. These Turnerian depictions of Whitby, Scarborough, Ravenscar are testament not only to the visceral power of a painter at the peak of his skills but the wild magic of the north.
 
PRAISE FOR DAVID BAUMFORTH
David Baumforth was born in York in 1942 and paints the places he loves: the North Sea, its coastline and hinterland. Says Financial Times Art Critic William Packer, “Baumforth is a painter of sea and landscape who stands foursquare and unapologetic in the Romantic Turnerian tradition, but, as his powerfully evocative works make clear, it is to the later Turner of the near-abstract, apparently unfinished canvases and the rapid free intuitive watercolour studies, all mist and light and spray, with strange forms
emerging from the shadows, that he is always looking.”
“Anyone who has an eye for art, the deep passionate colour of Turner, the pure loving observations of Constable, must rejoice that our century has David Baumforth. This work is the real thing, wet with sea spray we can
feel, fresh with gusts of wind, always mysterious, always beautiful.” Sister Wendy, art critic.
