Michael works from a studio at Breeze Creatives in Newcastle.

My practice involves a ‘dialogue’ between materials, intuitions and gestures which seek to inscribe personal memories and feelings.

The paintings meditate upon the varied topographies of the built and natural world. I make studies en situ with drawings and photographs, often starting with some basic motifs of trees, tower blocks, cranes, bridges and road markings.

The paintings and collages on show present some of these recurrent motifs found in cityscapes.

There are also a series of paintings which explore the various material aspects of painterly practice.
