Clark Nicol SWAc

Clark Nicol graduated in Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee during which time he was a prize winner in the Scottish Open Art Competition. After a post-graduate award he moved to London, where he taught art. He moved to Devon with his family in 2002 and is currently Head of Art at Plymouth College. His work since February 2019 has been concerned with exploring a more expressive approach to landscape painting. Working loosely and more intuitively, his marks evoke a greater sense of energy and immediacy. “I want to create work which gives the viewer a feeling as close as possible to being there in the view, enjoying the sensations of heat, wind and rain.”

He was shortlisted for the Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year competition in 2016 and 2018, reaching the quarter final both times.
