TERRY WATTS

Terry Watts
Graduating from Camberwell School of Arts & Crafts in the 1960s, Terry Watts has subsequently enjoyed an incredibly successful career to date as a professional artist, culminating in his election to the Royal Society of British Artists in 2006. He has also been awarded numerous accolades for his work, including ‘Best Picture’ in the Buzzacott/Defries Prize and ‘The Artist Magazine Award’ at the RBA. His artwork continually grows in popularity worldwide, year on year.

Watts’ stunning pictures begin to come to life very quickly through initial sketches. During this stage the composition and perspective are finalised with the end result conveying a sense of place and atmosphere, rather than acting as an accurate portrayal of the world around us.

His horizons define the feel of his paintings, dividing the surface of the canvas into a largely classical proportionality. It is this property, more than any other, which connects his work with the landscape traditions of 17th and 18th century Europe, 19th century America and, via the abstract colour field painters of the 20th century, to the present. As a contemporary representational landscape painter, he is increasingly aware of the contribution that abstract painting has made to our visual vocabulary and that any representational painting must also succeed in abstract terms.

Many of Watts’ works are constructed from remembered material combined with structural elements from real locations, but often with radically modified perspectives. Features physically separated in the landscape may be united in the painting, corresponding more closely to the emotional response remembered by the viewer.
