David Farren - Bailey Arts

I was born in 1972 in Wiltshire and have recently moved to the Perigord region of south west France with my family. I’ve worked as a professional artist since 2000 and, in that time, have gained a reputation as a modern impressionist, using open brushwork and colour to represent the energy and movement of the landscape. I am fascinated by the changing light within a scene and how it determines the mood of a place at a particular time - be it a busy New York street or a quiet corner of France. The painting process begins with finding inspiration -walking the streets of New York or London with my sketchbook and camera, looking for interesting light and compositions. I’m often up before dawn so I can be in location for sunrise when there’s a strong contrast between the warmth of the sun, lighting up the edges of figures and cars, and the long cool shadows. I then take all the ideas and information back to my garden studio where I work from the sketches to create the finished painting. I also enjoy the challenge of painting en plein air -mostly small studies that I can complete in one session -these then inform the studio works. I have exhibited my paintings in leading galleries across the country and my paintings are held in private collections in the UK, France, USA and Ireland. My work has recently featured in The Artist magazine. Please see the exhibitions page for details of upcoming shows.
