Ross Loveday is an abstract artist and printmaker originally from Wales now living and working in mid Suffolk.
Ross says about his work, "The fine line which separates figuration and abstraction interests me; time, place, weather and light alongside gesture, glimpse and memory. The subjects are only the starting points- sometimes small insignificant details or texture triggers a complete piece".
Ross uses natural earth colours greys, browns and blues to capture the unique nature of a place. Ross finds his inspiration in the salt marshes of North Norfolk, the Pembrokeshire and Essex coasts.
He started his career as an optician before turning to printmaking and painting in his mid 30"s. He trained with the master printer Stanley Jones at the renowned Curwen Studios in Cambridgeshire and won the Julian Trevelyan Award at Originals in 2008 selected by Mary Fedden at the Mall Galleries, London.
Since then his career has included many solo and group exhibitions at the Mall Galleries, Eames Fine Art, London and in Suffolk and Norfolk galleries.
One of his paintings is in King Charles III's personal collection.
Cosmo Landsman, in the The Sunday Times said;
'This is what Ross Loveday's series of acrylic paintings manages. He takes the neglected feature of the landscape and makes is the star attraction. Something seething and full of menace suggesting not the cosy countryside but on the contrary the malevolent face of Mother Nature."
