Jon Pryke R.B.A

All Artists Gallery

Jon Pryke, paintings are about communication, he draws from his experience in the design and print related fields. However he gets involved in the painting he never forgets the viewer. Once he notices something that engages him he paints it, and he wants the viewer to get the same spark and if so, he feels his art has been successful. After the onset of eye problems at the age of 30, which he can now describe as a blessing in disguise, he concentrated on his paintings. He developed a love for pastels as a medium, a medium not often chosen by artists, and after many years of working with pastels, he is now a master of their usage. His works can be extreme in colour, subtleness and atmosphere.
