Malcolm Ludvigsen is an oil painter with a particular interest in figure and en plein-air painting. He finds it preferable, whenever possible to paint in the open air, directly infront of his the subject. He feels that this gives his work a vibrancy and vitality that he feels many paintings created in a studio often lack. After hearing someone say that 'a brush stroke in the field is worth twenty in the studio', he decided that he heartidly agreed with this statement.

Malcolm believes that when he started painting, the first thing that attracted him was Ruskin's exhortation that 'all men, as part of their morning salatations, should go out and paint a picture of the sky'. This sounded like a very nice thing to do, so he decided to give it a go and has not stopped painting since.

His subject matter is the ordinary, the domestic and the common place. Malcolm does not seek out the spectacular, the shocking or the disturbing. He is drawn to the beautiful but does not seek it out. He states that 'if his paintings have any purpose, apart from his own pleasure in painting them, then it is to show the extraordinary in the ordinary'. He does not consider himself to be part of the artistic establishment which he finds 'backward looking and conservative' instead preferring to go his own way and ignore present fads an fashions.

Malcolm's paintings are popular and can be found in galleries throughout the UK and US.

When he is not painting, Malcolm is a professor of Mathematics. He has an international reputation for his work in relativity, black holes and cosmology and has written a well known book on relativity.
