Norman Ackroyd - Fine Art Society

Norman Ackroyd, Balmoral Forest Loch Muick, 2002
Norman Ackroyd: Just be a Poet is at the Fine Art Society until 30 November 2016.
Norman Ackroyd has devoted a lifetime to the making of subtle and beautiful watercolours and prints – especially, aquatints – of the coastal landscape of the British Isles. He is drawn particularly to islands, from the Scillies to the northernmost point of the British Isles – Muckle Flugga on Shetland; he works out in all weathers, sometimes in a boat, making pictures of sea, rocks, birds, sky and light. The prints are made in his studio in Bermondsey.
Listen to an interview on BBC Radio 4’s Front Row (starts at 5'30"); watch a BBC film about him (NB the sound is missing at the very beginning); download a copy of the exhibition catalogue from the Fine Art Society.
