"Les oeuvres récentes de David Rycroft sont le produit d'une innovation technique au potentiel illimité. 

Ces tableaux non-peints, dans le sens où l'artiste n'utilise pas de pinceau, évoquent une dimension cosmique réellement libératrice."

Richard Calvocoressi, Director Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, 1987-2007

Le peintre David Rycroft vient d’exposer ses toiles à l’Unesco

"De ses tableaux, en partie inspirés de la calligraphie zen, se dégage en effet une grande impression de sérénité."

The indivisibility of naturalness and purity, not only within the natural world but also within us, forms an integral part of [David Rycroft’s] artistic vision.

There is a thoughtful discipline in his approach.... Drawing from his Buddhist practice, he believes it is important to be in a certain state of mind each day when he starts work. "I basically believe whatever comes out is a result of one's intention. It's like a meditative thing, only when the mind is clear can you work."

The technique used in the sweeps of colour is accidental, but it looks very precise, almost photographic. 

When asked what genre he would label himself as, he is rightly hesitant. "Form, colour, transcendence - the idea of leading you towards something inconceivable. I admire the Romantics for that - the dissolution of form, the luminosity and space."
