Michael Alford: A Lightness of Touch - Coming Soon


Recent Paintings

27 August - 4 September 2020

Although a versatile painter it is perhaps his portraits of beautiful women for which he is best known. His trademark model looks tragically out of the picture plain, a poet's muse, pale and Titian haired. His media plays with the impression of the antique - Some are painted onto parchment, some backed with gold leaf in a Klimt-like halo. Michael completely immerses himself in his process, working intensely on the layered surfaces his studio output is consequently minimal and as such his paintings are rare and we are fortunate indeed to gather this number together for this exhibition.
