Ice Cold Under the Skin

‘I love Film Noir movies. This painting is completely character-driven and the narrative is so strong that it couldn’t survive without it, but I don’t mind that because the characters are so strong. All thanks go to my friends, who posed once again and put their all into it. The painting was a lot of fun and developed itself as it went along.

I got three quarters of the way through another version of this painting (all in black and white), before abandoning it and starting again, because the composition wasn’t working. The new design progressed so much better that I didn’t have to work very hard at all.’

About The Artist

Born in 1985, Will Rochfort grew up in Lymington on the south coast of England and, apart from his time studying Illustration and Fine Art at Kingston University, he has lived there all his life. Since graduating in 2008 his focus has been primarily oil painting.
will rochfort artist

Will’s main reason for becoming an artist is from a passion for creativity.

“There is rarely any strong meaning or message behind my work – narrative takes a large role because I like the work to be emotive through what is being portrayed, but creativity is the driving force behind all of my paintings”

From 2008 to 2010 Will Rochfort worked as an Official Artist for the 2012 London Olympics, working with Olympic Gold Medalists, producing paintings in support of the Games and its associated charities.

As well as completing several portrait commissions, Will Rochfort is always searching for new ideas for paintings and usually finds this in books or cinema. With influences ranging from Degas to Rockwell, to the films of Steven Spielberg, it is narrative that really interests Will and he always aims to have a story within his work.

“I am a very visual painter and with the public being my target audience over the art establishment, I always aim to depict scenes that, through the characters portrayed, I hope people can relate to and enjoy”

Pirates

‘T’he imagination of a child is a theme I always like to tackle. Often, I abandon it because I can’t think of a way to do such a wonderful theme justice. Here, where I took a much more literal approach, I was greatly challenged by what you don’t need in an image.

What can the painting get away with not having?
In its initial stages, I threw everything into this image to tell its story and gradually removed things until it had the bare essentials needed to support the narrative.’

Casablanca

‘Set in the fifties, this painting developed after seeing an old cinema exterior in London.

There is something so attractive about the clip-on lettering compared to the digital displays we have today, that I wanted to capture it.
A lot of research went into this work. That’s my 82 year old granddad up that ladder!’

About The Artist

I was born and raised in Glasgow. Due to long periods of illness during childhood, I found myself retreating into my own imaginative world, through my love of drawing. As I grew up, it became clear that drawing and painting were my passion. Finally, a long-held ambition was realised when I graduated in Drawing and Painting from Glasgow School of Art.

After Art School, I felt I needed a wider context for my work, so decided to study with The Open University. It was hard going as I was teaching art at the time, but it was very useful. I specialised in 20th century arts, with the study of Music, History and Poetry giving a much wider range of reference to my work.

My work is mainly for private collectors, often being specific commissions for their home or office. Usually these are Allegories, Portraits or Figure Studies. I have had solo and group shows in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Harrogate and Brighton.
My approach is in many ways traditional, following the methods of the great masters of figure painting At the same time I have always been fascinated by the way the camera captures people in both still and moving images. In my work, I try to combine these two potent sources of inspiration to make intriguing images.
“The narrative is implied, but has to be completed by the viewer…”

Ronnie Ireland – Jazz Singer

I was born into a family of singers – from my father there was opera and the legendary classical singers; from my mother, the Hollywood musicals and the show tunes.

Pop and Rock I found for myself.

This broad base has served me well, as I have enjoyed performing in all of these styles and found their interaction fascinating. Formal voice training followed, with lead roles in opera and international choral performances with the world’s leading conductors and orchestras.

At the same time, I led my own rock band, writing much of the material. “The Great American Songbook” was always there however and audiences were often surprised to be introduced to standards by Irving Berlin or Duke Ellington in between the rock classics!

Nowadays, I centre on those jazz and swing standards, but am always open to including any song from anywhere that catches my interest.
