his familiarity with the maritime environment has provided
a recurrent theme in his contemporary paintings. Although
a move to Devon and subsequent discovery of Dartmoor led to
a large body of work on paper. Richard Dack paints primarily
in oils and since leaving teaching art in 1997 he has received
the Mariners Award for Modern Art and won The Worshipful Company
of Shipwrights Award at The Royal Society of Marine Artists
exhibition of 1998.The following year Dack won the Ariel Open

Pursuing maritime subjects takes Dack to many
coastal locations, but it is invariably the quality of light
that provides the major focus in his contemporary paintings.

Richard Dack in the Cotswolds since 2003. In addition to Red
