Tony Scrivener

Tony returned to painting after a successful business career and has been painting professionally for fifteen years. He has a Diploma in Fine Art from Bournemouth & Poole College of Art & Design, and a first class BA (Hons) degree from the Open University in modern art practice. He lives and works in Dorset and France.

His work is distinctive: principally a painter of landscapes and still life, drawing plays a key role in the development of his painting and line becomes a strong element in his paintings, delineating and separating space of both object and composition.

Tony's concern is not with reproducing a likeness but in capturing the essential characteristics of his subject. His methodology is one of constant change until the tensions of the composition are right - a process which manifests itself in surface texture, residual colour and marks that give the painting its life.

Tony's work has been exhibited at galleries throughout the UK including in recent years New Ashgate, Farnham; Porthminster Gallery, St.Ives; Oliver Contemporary, London, as well as the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and major London art fairs. He has had work selected for Bournemouth University's Artist Loan Scheme and Southampton Art Gallery Open.
