Bryn Sutcliffe

fine art


My art is mainly rendered in paint, as this is and always has been my preference.

I also enjoy drawing and have a large portfolio of nudes, legendary icons etc. I enjoy portraiture using paint, pastel, pencil, chalk and charcoal.  As well as intricate ‘lifelike’ portraits, I also enjoy a more contemporary style of work using distinctive mark making with a looser, freer feel.
In recent paintings I have been inspired by the photography of Norwegian photographer Andreas Swane, who kindly accepted my request to use his Urbex images of abandoned hospitals, insane asylums, theme parks, churches etc. The photographs provide me with the ammunition of a wonderfully thought-provoking platform to start from, this frees me to concentrate on imposing my conceptions upon the compositions and allows me to really begin experimenting with paint, colour and mixable mediums, which are added to the paint, thus creating different textures and effects, such as a corrosive appearance. The intention in this art is to line up both the deterioration of the subject matter and the effects of my experimental processes in my paintings.
I am open to commissions and can be emailed.
