Artist's description:

David Armitage is one of the UK’s leading exponents of painterly abstraction, he has been described as a ‘supreme colourist’, and garnered respect from fellow artists and critics, as well as enjoying successful exhibitions both nationally and internationally.

Over several decades Armitage’s work has shifted, grown and developed. Fine tuning technique through a combination of experimentation, planning, and practice has led him to be described as ‘one of the UK’s leading colourists.’ As with many of the Abstract Expressionists before him inspiration and subject matter are as wide as the human condition. Life, death, passion, tragedy are all here glowing through the washes or struck across ambiguous backgrounds in fervent brush strokes of searing colour.
Places of pilgrimage and worship, negated of their initial religious purpose provide a powerful source of inspiration. Similarly other spiritual places and iconographies appear, in fact one could say that all his works hum with a dark and intangible beauty also found in obsolete spiritual artifices.
