Christopher Riisager

Bat's Head - Oil on canvas

 A series of highly evocative paintings of the landscape of Dorset and Wiltshire by this exceptionally talented West Country artist.

Chris Riisager was born at Oxford in 1961, and attended Goldsmiths College in the eighties under the inspirational tutorship of  Joan Key and Adrian Ryan.

After a period of painting in London he moved his studio to Wiltshire / Dorset border, arguably one of the most beautiful and unspoilt areas of countryside in England.  He has worked there for the last 30 years as a painter, sculptor and teacher.
