Roy Fairchild (English b.1953)Born in 1953 in Surrey, England, Roy Fairchild lives and works most of the year in his country home. This peaceful environment is fundamental to Fairchild's well-being and stability as an artist, although he travels throughout Europe to obtain new sources of inspiration. Fairchild is particularly influenced by the painters of the Renaissance and often visits Italy to study the frescos, tapestries, and paintings to see for himself the techniques with which they were executed.Fairchild's vision is colored by his immersion in this past. Fairchild's surfaces are rich and sumptuous and he uses varied interwoven elements such as fabrics and flowers in his work. The crumpling plasterwork seen in ancient frescos are also alluded to in his use of plaster as base for acrylic and oil over-painting.Experimenting with different techniques, Fairchild developed entirely new methods of achieving effects in serigraphy to obtain qualities of light and color that are now in general use. Fairchild eventually gained sufficient financial security to be able to give up his commercial illustrations and return full time to his own painting and printmaking which he does under his family name, Fairchild.As a printmaker, Fairchild has found most favor with serigraphy where the rich, opaque colors of his work are furthered by the medium, although his figure drawings he still prefers to translate into etchings.
