Nicholas Wriglesworth

In his paintings, Nicholas Wriglesworth explores different qualities of light and atmosphere which affect our urban environment.  Recent work looks at cities such as London, New York and Madrid.


Nicholas Wriglesworth has 

developed an increasing interest in including people and their behaviour.


Initially he takes a photograph to capture a frozen moment and then uses it as a reference. This allows the artist to fix compositional information, lighting and moving objects and work for an extended period of time. 


This technique involves choosing one main photo to work from, adding or removing small details only, such as people or cars for composition. He carefully draws the initial composition then builds up layers of colour and information to a point of extreme clarity.


Nicholas Wriglesworth studied at Slade School of Fine Art, London.


He has exhibited with Angela Flowers, London and New York (Small is Beautiful), Silas Marder Gallery, New York (The Big Show), The Mall Galleries, London (The ING Discerning Eye) and Zimmer Stewart Gallery, Arundel. As well as being a finalist in the Celeste Art Prize, London, he has gained numerous awards and lives and works in West Sussex.
