Richard Dack RSMA EAGMA

Richard Dack studied painting and printmaking at Camberwell School of Art, where drawing and rigorous observation were central to a regime that insisted on the relationships between form, tone and colour being struck exactly – disciplines that served him well in his development as an artist. Following art school he taught for a while in Cambridgeshire, and later in Devon, before making the transition to full-time painter.

He is a member of the Royal West of England Academy, and former Secretary of the Royal Society of Marine Artists, where since becoming a member he has received the Shipwrights Prize on two occasions and the Classic Boat Prize. His work has featured in major Open Competitions.

In 2010 Richard won the Sea Pictures Gallery Working Relationship with the Sea Prize at the RSMA for his piece entitled “Working Below”.

Richard grew up in Lowestoft when it was a flourishing port, with a bustling fish market and busy shipyards. This rich environment provide the subject matter for his first serious adventures into painting while at school, and this attraction to the industrial aspects of the maritime world played a large part in his eventual emergence as a marine artist, and remains with him to this day.

However, he is also to be found working along the estuaries and coastline at a variety of locations from the rugged shores of the southwest to the wide open spaces of North Norfolk. In these situations light is frequently the focus of his work, and he is especially fond of the delicate and transient quality of light that is so characteristic of the east coast. He now lives in Suffolk.
