An exhibition of work by artist Michael Hales

An exhibition of work by artist Michael Hales Michael Hales has developed his practice through working in encaustics, combining the fluidity of the beeswax damar resin with the vibrancy of oil painting. Through this bold use of colour applied in layers using heat and carving previous strata, an abstract landscape is summoned into being on the heavily worked birch ply surface. Michael is influenced by the current zeitgeist, where a growing cultural response, to an incredibly fast changing world, has developed an increasing nostalgic view of the past. The images aim to evoke wistful memories or glimpses of inviting landscapes that appear both heavily abstracted and familiar at once.He is currently working from his own studio in Emly.
