A constructivist landscape painter, Andrew Pringle breaks scenes into abstract shapes using muted tones that capture the colour and light of the Suffolk coast where he has lived for many years. His other seascapes are more conventional, depicting familiar views of boats moored in harbours or beside fisherman’s huts ashore muddy riverbanks and pebbly beaches and his awards include the David Murray Landscape Award, Henfield Award and Knights of the Round Table Award.
