As a constructivist landscape painter, Andrew Pringle breaks scenes into abstract shapes using muted tones that capture the colour and light of the Suffolk coast where he has lived for many years. His other seascapes are more conventional, depicting familiar views of boats moored in harbours or beside fisherman’s huts ashore muddy riverbanks and pebbly beaches.
Pringle graduated from the Ruskin School of Drawing where he was taught by R.B Kitaj RA and John Piper CH before studying at The Royal Academy of Art as a postgraduate. His awards include the David Murray Landscape Award, Henfield Award and Knights of the Round Table Award and he has exhibited across the UK, including The Royal Academy, Sue Rankin Gallery and the Christ Church Picture Gallery. His work belongs to numerous discerning private collectors such as the late art critic Brian Sewell and the art scholar and historian Sir Brinsley Ford.
