David Brayne

David Brayne (born 1954) lives and works in Somerset. He studied at Nottingham School of Art, Gloucestershire College of Art and Exeter University. He was elected as a member of the Royal Watercolour Society in 2001. He exhibits widely and has received a number of awards, including the Turner Medal and first prize in the National Open Art Competition.

There is a poetry of perception expressed in David Brayne’s painting that is informed by his earlier Minimalist training and his growing Classical concerns. His surfaces are chalky dry, reminiscent of early Renaissance frescoes, his colours, in a cool, northern light, have a vibrant Italian ochre singing out. Land and sea, figures in quiet spaces, appear blended together in a gentle linear exchange. He mixes his paints from raw pigments, building layers of luminous glazes.

An east coast childhood and his home near the Somerset Levels have left a profound mark on David’s visual imagination. Watery landscapes and skies preoccupy him. Not descriptively or topographically but recalled from memory, the characteristic indeterminacy of light and form coinciding with his own painterly concerns.
