Painting: Design for Living

Design for Living by Ron Waddams

The artist Ron Waddams, born in 1920, continued to produce work in his distinctive style, using elements from the near and distant past to create contemporary expression of spiritual and humanitarian concerns, until shortly before he died, in September 2010. Many of the works are reflections on living without conflict, and refer to the aims of the United Nations charter.

Exhibitions have included display of Ron Waddams’ work in the nave of Coventry Cathedral during the month of August 2003, and in the Chapter House of Canterbury Cathedral during August 2004. Some of his humanitarian works were displayed in Warwick University Arts Centre during the AGM of the British Section of Amnesty International in April 2000.

The Larren Art Trust was established to enable others to benefit from the success of his work. Ron Waddams has generously donated much of his work, via the Trust, to assist the peace testimony of the Society of Friends (Quakers) and the United Nations Association. The Trustees are thus able to offer a number of original works for sale, and also to make works available on loan. Public bodies such as hospitals, schools and colleges are invited to accept works on free loan for evaluation.
