Bryan Whiteley

Born at Aldeburgh, Suffolk in 1945, son of Albert Whiteley and his wife Josephine née Smith, who married in the Deben district of Suffolk in 1941. Bryan studied at Ipswich School of Art 1962-1963 and at Camberwell School of Art, London 1963-1966, obtaining a diploma in Art & Desiign, his early influences were Cezanne and Braque. Art Teacher & Head of Expressive Arts, The Boswells School, Chelmsford 1966-2005. At college he made few attempts to paint naturalistically, preferring the order of straight lines, shallow space and the interaction of colour. Eventually all signs of the familiar disappeared, the colours became brighter and the patterned lines of the image were stacked, made circular, folded and spiralled. More recent work has been about places visited such as Russia, Italy and New Zealand and is a synthesis of memories rather than portraits of actual places. A member of Chelmsford Art Group 2000-2008; Artworks and a print workshop member at Gainsborough's House, Sudbury from 2005. He has exhibited at Haste Gallery, Ipswich; Little Baddow Arts Centre, Chelmsford; Digby Gallery, Colchester; John Russell Gallery, Ipswich; Artists in Essex, Waltham Abbey; Beecroft Gallery, Southend; Gainsborough's House Print Fair, Snape; Steeple Gallery, Halesworth; Gallerie Malicorne; Salon Melusin'Art and L'atelier Bleu, Vouvant, France; Babylon Gallery, Ely; 12PM Prints & More, Southwold; Colchester Art Society; Anita Klein and elsewhere. www.bryanwhiteleyart.com
