Dermod Ruddock’s paintings are inspired by light and colour, dramatic landscapes and fabulous natural environments.
Lighting is a vital ingredient… a dramatic Scottish storm… vibrant siesta time on a Greek island… deep shadows as evening falls over the Lancashire fells.
Influenced by artists as diverse as Cezanne, Kandinsky, Peploe and Key, and painting mainly in oils, Dermod constantly develops his practice using a bold ‘expressionist realist’ style of work.
He draws frequently, often outdoors, capturing fleeting moments for future reference…
Every painting captures a moment in time – each is colourful, exuberant and bursting with life – each is special…
