Alan is an artist who manages that rare balance in painting, his works appear simultaneously classical yet utterly contemporary in effect. In recent years he has worked towards perfecting large scale still-lifes, each characterised by daringly fluid paintwork and a refreshing economy of style. The subject matter is carefully chosen and each painting is prepared over time with meticulous attention to the balance and harmony of composition. Only when the artist is completely satisfied with all elements of an idea will he approach the canvas, often completing a painting in a bout of uninterrupted activity lasting a single day. Thus a maximum level of energy is maintained in the finished work, stretching the limits of brushwork with a directness and clarity that excites the eye.
Alan Kingsbury has lived and worked in Venice, Scotland and, since 1991, West Cornwall.
He has held numerous solo exhibitions over the last thirty years and has exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts, The New English Art Club and the Royal Society of Portrait Painters. He is an elected Academician of the Royal West of England Academy.
