Nigel Swift graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art in 1981, and since then has exhibited his work throughout the UK.
'My work is mostly landscape based, from looking and working in situ or from memories and drawings completed in my studio.’
Swift’s prints combine drypoint, etching and monotype, as these are all very direct methods of catching shapes, mood and atmosphere. He often works in location and returns to the studio to simplify the images. In both his painting and printmaking drawing is the structure upon which everything else hangs. ‘Keeping the images small, for me, increases the intensity.'
