Au Grand Soleil II

Primary colours as wild, gregarious and as expansive as that of a childís imagination, contemporary landscape painter, Richard Pargeter takes his bright and beautiful hues and saturations, and runs with them, illustratively speaking. Not to do Pargeter a disservice in any way, yet thereís a definite child-like application and overall appeal to your typical Pargeter composition, courtesy of the simplistic structure and juxtapositioning of the trees, the farm dwellings, the crops and the distant horizons and all the key elements which live and prosper within a habitual Pargeter pictorial. Yet whilst Pargeterís colourific pieces are seemingly paint-by-numbers in certain lights, his alternative, more sombre reflections of similar plains and vistas are very much firmly planted in the more abstract as both the instant identifiable landscapes of Provence and Tuscany receive the graphic treatment once more.
Born in 1976 under a Midlands sky, Pargeterís creative calling was mooted at an early age by all who found themselves in the presence of young master P and his junior-spec art materials. Heís also gone on record as having said that as a child he dreamed of one day becoming a painter and to this very day refers to himself as one of lifeís fortunate few who have been able to pursue their dreams, thanks to his God-given gift. And a huge amount of hard work and dedication, of course. Once Pargeter had put pay to his formal secondary education he headed off in a northerly direction to further his artistic education; destination the University of Central England. For his troubles, creativity and application, Pargeter walked away with an impressive First Class Honours degree in Visual Communication, and it wasnít long after graduating that he made his first moves in a professional capacity.
Assuming the role of a freelance childrenís book illustrator from the off, Pargeter also continued with art work of a more personal nature and definition behind the scenes; just like he had done during his university days before. In his more formal guise as a childrenís illustrator Pargeter won numerous commissions for books and various other projects as his reputation quickly began to grow. Not long afterwards examples of his graphic work was selected to appear amongst those of his peers at the Royal College of Art no less, thanks to receiving an invite at the bequest of the New Designers Exhibition organisers in conjunction with Images 24. Once the exhibition had run its course in London it went on to tour the UK, being hosted by several prestigious galleries and venues nationwide thereafter. Now things really began to take off for Pargeter as his name started to be spoken about in all important contemporary landscape circles as he steadily became a force to be creatively reckoned with. With a clear and present passion for acrylics, Pargeterís laminating landscapes, introducing us to the lustrous shades of endless Provencale summers and in which possessed an immediacy and beguilement factor all of their own, certainly stood up to any critiques and frame to frame with the work of his then contemporary peers. Pargeterís depth of painted layers combined with his somewhat jagged brushstrokes melded together with surprising ease so as to illustratively foster this magnanimous, harmonious wall of pastoral imaging which perpetually evoke pleasing memories of summerís well spent in anyone and everyone whose gaze Pargeterís signature pictures hold.
In terms of Pargeterís artistic inspirations, he unusually (for a practicing painter) neglects to mention any particular person or name-drop in the fashion that so many do, instead preferring to stress that any number of styles and movements have influenced his own specific understanding of his subject matter and consequent compositional delivery pretty much from the outset, most of which he insists would be subconsciously inhaled anyway. Pargeter believes that by witnessing the art of others (Pargeter is a frequent visitor to art galleries both in his native UK and abroad) and that of the world around him that heís absorbed as much form, colour and technique as he ever could have done simply by routinely admiring and following the works of one artist or another.
Alongside his painting demands and pleasures Pargeter works as a lecturer at a number of Institutes of Art and Design, passing on to others the skills and attributes heís possessed and frequented since his youth, however painting and illustration will always remain his first love and his chosen career path. Devoting much of his time to his dramatic landscapes, Pargeter revels in his predominantly acrylic craft and his manipulation of his rich, vibrant colour palette and feels that even on the coldest, greyest, wettest day you can peer into one of his habitually sunny compositions and almost touch the warmth and feel the colour lift the spirit. Speaking on precisely this topic, Pargeter explains; ďI love to paint, and am inspired by the whole concept of creativity; the idea that a blank canvas can be turned into something that someone will cherish is very exciting to meĒ. He goes on to add; ďI also enjoy the fact that a painting can mean different things to different people, so a scene I painted after a glorious trip to Provence will remind me of that sun-kissed day with my sketchbook, while for another person it may evoke memories of a childhood holiday, or a romantic summer afternoon.Ē
Suffice to say the enigmatic, naturally-occurring landscapes which litter every perceivable corner of Southern France, Italy and Spain inspire Pargeter time after time, and that every time he looks out of a window in Tuscany the scene that heís greeted with is so impossibly enveloping of the senses that he ponders whether or not heís taking in reality or an idyllic painting; which of course ignites the creative spark within him and results in Pargeter reaching for those expressive, expansive brushes and oils and capture that sunlit hillside or glorious, cloudless sky at his beck and call.
