William Roper-Curzon’s work is an exemplar of traditional draughtsmanship in the hands of a fresh,
The Gathering is William’s first solo show. The collection comprises dynamic figurative and landscape
drawings, displaying a strong rhythm of line and mark making, both traditional and utterly of the
moment; the choice of Richard Wright as the Turner Prize winner in 2009 heralds a renaissance in skill-
based use of expressive forms. Influenced by such artists as Lucian Freud, Frank Auerbach and Maggie
Hambling, William’s portraits are emotive, expressive, and tactile. Working in pen, ink, pencil, charcoal
and coloured pencil, he uses conflicting palettes to create vibrant and striking images.
William has exhibited at the Rose Theatre, The Royal Overseas League in London and in his hometown
of Lymington. He has executed numerous private commissions and acted as 'Artist in Residence' for a
private client. In December 2009 his work was included in Art Barter London, alongside Tracey Emin
and Gavin Turk.
