Peter Bolton, Artist

Peter Bolton paints evocative, often somber landscapes reflecting the wild, often bleak beauty of the Dales landscape.

Peter Bolton has lived in Ingleton since 1971 and opened his own gallery in 1993. He was born in Bradford in 1946. He has a degree in Fine Art from Leeds University. Many paintings are commissioned and Peter has had his work in many collections both in the UK and abroad. His early work demonstrated an interest in the close mix of the industrial and rural which are the main ingredients of the old West Riding where he grew up. These contrasting elements gradually became the main focus of his work and filtered through into his interpretation of other landscape and his use of colour and shape. His figrative work, using a limited palette, in watercolour or gouache has a sombre, reflective feel with the medium often applied very thickly. His work in oils is more abstract with stronger colour and texture which is built up in many layers. Working in the studio, entirely from memory, these pieces are painted over a much longer period, often many months, and so he always has several works developing at the same time.
