Artist: Bruce YARDLEY

Bruce Yardley was born in 1962. Although he produced his first oil painting whilst at school in the 1970's he trained as an historian at the universities of Bristol and Oxford before joining the wine trade, first in retail, then as a freelance writer.

Bruce Yardley has been painting full-time since 1996. He paints exclusively in oils, working in the impressionist tradition producing paintings based on light, water and architecture.These timeless subjects for artists and Bruce is happy to confirm the debt to those early pioneers. He says: 'The Impressionists were the first painters who really meant something to me, and that continues to this day. Whenever I go to a big civic art gallery, it’s the rooms representing the half-century from 1860 that have the most life and interest for me. What I especially like about them is their willingness to paint almost everything that passed before their eyes. There was no longer a hierarchy of worthiness in subject matter.'

Although Bruce Yardley cites Degas and Sickert among his chief impressionist school influences, it's Monet he cherishes most. Yardley's subject matters are varied, but figures feature predominantly. Recurring themes to his contemporary paintings are cityscapes such as London, Venice, New York and Bath, still life, interiors, and figurative studies. Uniting all his work is a fascination with the varied effects of light, whether it is the crisp sun of an English autumn, the cushioning glow of the Venetian lagoon, or the sparkling duplications of wet and dry reflections.

Writing in 'The Artist' Oliver Lange observed: 'Bruce Yardley's strengths lie in confident brushwork, subtle colouring, firmly differentiated tones and convincing compositions, but perhaps where he succeeds most of all is the ability to offer teasingly restrained quality that suggests or evokes rather than painstakingly describes'. His modern art has become much sought after in England and the United States. Lange continues: His strengths lie in confident brushwork, subtle colouring, firmly differentiated tones and convincing compositions. But perhaps where he succeeds most of all is in the ability to offer a teasingly restrained quality that suggests or evokes rather than painstakingly describes'.

Bruce Yardley is an associate member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI). He has had many one-man art shows, mainly around London, and exhibits regularly at various British Art Galleries and abroad. As well as having a profiles published in The Artist and Leisure Painter, Bruce has won the Menena Joy Schwabe Memorial Award for work exhibited at the ROI annual exhibition, December 2000.

Each painting at Red Rag is sourced from the Bruce Yardley artist studio and like all Red Rag Modern British art and Contemporary art it can be shipped worldwide.
