Born in East Anglia, the multi-award-winning Bob Rudd studied at the Bath Academy of Art and settled in the West Country. Widely recognised as a superlative exponent of watercolour, he is inspired by landscape and architecture from the Isles of Scilly to the north of Scotland. Mountains, rivers, rocky coastlines and the sea are favourite subjects, captured in strong colours.
Councillor Cherry Beath (Lib-Dem, Combe Down), Cabinet Member for Sustainable Development, said: "This is just one of the many high quality exhibitions which the Victoria Art Gallery puts on throughout the year in support of Bath & North East Somerset Council's commitment to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of culture."
Jon Benington, Manager of the Victoria Art Gallery, said: "Bob Rudd paints in translucent watercolour with great skill and often on a large scale. His paintings explore a variety of ways of depicting landscape. Realistically-painted passages contrast with freely-interpreted areas in the same painting, bordering on abstraction. Bob was a very worthy winner of the prestigious Turner Watercolour Award at the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours."Bob Rudd will also be giving a talk and tour of his show to partially sighted people on Thursday morning on 29 November from 10.30am to 12noon. The event is free and there is no need to book.
Commenting on the forthcoming exhibition, Bob Rudd added: "I am pleased to have the opportunity of an exhibition in the excellent venue of the Victoria Art Gallery. It is always interesting to see the work assembled in a new space and I am looking forward to seeing it there."
