The artist Dale Inglis is exhibiting in the National Theatre Olivier exhibition space for the first time, in anticipation of his residency at St John's Church, Waterloo next year.
Inglis' paintings are the result of long acquaintance with and intensive exploration of the River Thames, especially the stretch from Charing Cross to London Bridge, focusing most particularly on the area around Cannon Street Station and Southwark Cathedral. This exhibition is the latest expression of the NT's ongoing creative relationship with its local parish church, and is timed to coincide with St John's annual Waterloo Festival.
Dale Inglis was born in Canada in 1946. He attended art school in Canada and London, moving with his family to Britain in 1979. He has worked as a painter, muralist and teacher. One of his chief interests has been the study and depiction of the River Thames. He works at the Elephant & Castle and in Sussex, where he lives with his wife, Janet.
