Ian Rutter

Gareth Lister was born in York, England where he spent his childhood. After moving to London aged 18 he completed a degree in fine art with a specialism in painting at Chelsea college of art, following this up with an M.A. at the same college a few years later. He now lives and works in Andalucia at the entrance to the Alpujarras high above the spa town of Lanjaron, Spain. 

He has exhibited in a variety of shows throughout the United Kingdom and his work is in several collections in the United Kingdom, Europe, Japan and Australia. 

While living in Spain he has curated a number of exhibitions both large and small, indeed Spain has brought on a new impetus and desire to make work. 

His paintings can be sensuous, luminous and often beautiful. If there is a narrative it is contingent, like a stopping point in a dream, often intriguing, but ambiguous.
