Brian Sinfield Art Gallery
Richard Adams studied illustration at Leicester Polytechnic where he received a BA Hon degree. Having been born in Hampshire his family later moved to the stunning South Cotswold countryside of Wiltshire, a landscape that has had a strong and lasting influence on his work. Following his graduation Adams first moved to London where for many years he produced images for clients such as BP and the Radio Times and since then settled in East Sussex.
How does one describe Richard Adam's paintings? Visionary, idiosyncratic, surreal or just plain hilarious? The answer is probably all of these. His humour and fertile imagination seem to know no bounds. Adams creates idylls and then adds quirky people that often float above the ground and seldom stand upright. His is a whimsical world of earthenware jugs full of cider, tractor rides, wild unabandoned partying and handstand competitions. He is a master of imagination, a champion of originality and a pastel artist of the highest calibre. He has an extraordinary ability to connect with the viewer and his saucy sense of humour never fails to provoke a broad smile.

We have recently recieved a stunning group of pastels by Andrew Hemingway. Andrew works in pastel, producing images of remarkable precision and depth and is probably one of the most important still life artists working in pastel today. Because of the intense concentration needed with this kind of work his output is small and consequently his paintings rare.
Born in Yorkshire, he attended the Barnsley School of Art and took a degree in Fine Art and the History of Art at Camberwell. He exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy and his work can be found in private
collections, world wide including Italy, New York, Australia, South Africa, London, Hamburg, Japan and Holland.
The Brian Sinfield Gallery has represented Andrew Hemingway since 1990.
