Exhibition 'None the Wiser' continues 15 June 2024 - 8 July 2024

Best known for his humour-infused paintings of everyday life, Richard takes on a fiction of endless sunshine and joyful leisure, where, coupled with his vivid imagination fairies inhabit comfortably! His humour and fertile imagination seem to know no bounds.

His pastels are composite images in that they relate to no particular place, but the fact that he was brought up amidst the south Cotswolds countryside, Cotswold-like images appear frequently. Nostalgia plays a part and this makes them even harder to resist.

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.
