Distinguished artist plays homage to the Dutch Masters with a playful quirky twist
Continuing an exciting programme of edgy solo selling shows, Duckett and Jeffreys Gallery are pleased to present âAltered Images', an intriguing exhibition of paintings by distinguished, award winning artist, Alan Salisbury.
Fitting into into the figurative tradition but influenced by ideas related to Post Modernism, Alan's works are frequently transcribed or appropriated from historical sources within the canon of European figurative painting. Humour and irony are used playfully to form different narratives and an observed subtext of seemingly, sensuous, almost erotic pleasure in the object within 17th Century Dutch still life painting is deliberately emphasised and exaggerated.
Alan studied at the Royal College of Art and currently lives in Wales. He has been shortlisted for many awards & won first prize for âThe New Look in British Portraiture' at the National Portrait Gallery and in 2008 first Prize in the Wales Portrait Award 2 competition. More recently in April 2010, Alan was successful in his application to become a member of the prestigious Royal Cambrian Academy.
Alan has exhibited widely including at The Walker Gallery, Liverpool, The V&A and The National Portrait Gallery. His work held in many public collections including the Arts Council, The Contemporary Arts Society and Yorkshire Education Authority. Alan exhibits mainly in Wales, London and the US making this first solo showing of his work in Yorkshire a unique opportunity for those living within the area to see, enjoy and collect his work.
An evening viewing is being held on Thurs 21st Oct, 7pm - 9pm, providing an opportunity to meet Alan and find out more about his work.
