Harry Rudham

Central Saint Martins

Rudham’s use of paper and oil pastels exploits the immediacy of these materials. He begins by drawing a scene in oil pastel. Then, he rips and re-assembles photographs of daily life into overlaying planes of colour. His paintings form a stylised observation of contemporary life. He would like his work to be understood as more than a simple snapshot of the cities where he lives. He is interested in the relationship between the city and rest; whether a space of rest is a park, “biergarten” or lake. His meditative paintings encourage the audience to pause and immerse themselves in the colours and mixed abstract and figurative forms, as if encouraging rest within the viewing of his work.
