Low Sizergh Barn, Sizergh, near Kendal
12 April – 4 July 2015
The pieces in this exhibition combine two elements of Mike’s earlier work – constructions from found wood and abstract/symbolic painting. The found material often comes from beaches around Morecambe Bay and the west coast of Scotland as well as “the clutter of the studio”.
Mike’s tendency is to avoid the figurative and explicit, following my nose until an image or effect suggest itself. Colour, balance, design and the intrinsic qualities of found materials are his main pre-occupations, with titles often added afterwards.
Low Sizergh Barn is open Mon to Sat, 9.30-5.00 and Sun 10.00-5.00.
