Christopher Ryland-Recent Watercolours
9.30 am - 5.00pm Mon - Sat
The John Russell Gallery, 4-6 Wherry Lane, Ipswich, IP4 1LG



Christopher Ryland has been developing his use of watercolour for many years, and has been for twenty years our only dedicated watercolour flower painter. His approach is one of careful spontaneity. A painting becomes almost like a complex jigsaw where, if things go well, the final application completes the picture. In May he was fortunate to be invited by Susan Witt to paint some of the irises she has grown in her garden in the village of Glemsford. The finished painting 'Glemsford Irises' gives an experience of being there as much as showing the extraordinary irises. He is honoured to be invited through the Society of Botanical Artists, to exhibit in a forthcoming exhibition called 'Tulipomania' at the Madrid Botanical Gardens, 20th March-20th May 2018. This exhibition is designed to record the craze for tulips which took place in Europe and the Netherlands in the 17th century. Christopher has always admired still life paintings by Chardin, Giorgio Morandi and, more recently, Euan Uglow. Many of his own are in this exhibition. Recently he has been experimenting with the structure of steps and placing pots and vases on different levels. At least one of the steps paintings can be seen in the exhibition.
Christopher Ryland graduated from Goldsmith's College in London in 1972. He was elected a member of the Society of Botanical Artists in 1995, winning the President's Award at the annual exhibition in Westminster in 2001 and the St.Cuthbert's Mill Award in 2007. Exhibitions have included The Barbican, The Royal Horticultural Society, The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour and The Medici Galleries. Much of his work is licensed by the Bridgeman Art Library and his paintings have featured in many publications, books and magazines. He has also been the subject of a biographical article in Country Life magazine, and a feature in Leisure Painter magazine. His last solo show here was in 2014, so we welcome Christopher Ryland for another exhibition of new stunning flowers in watercolour.
