Michael Strang is one of Englands best loved current painters, with work in private collections both in the UK and internationally.
A young Michael Strange was a student at both Camberwell and Wimbledon in the golden years of 1968-1973, graduating with a BA with Honours.
Primarily an oil painter who has continually been celebrated for his ability to capture the magic of a country scene, Michaels plein-air seascapes of Porthmeor beach were included in the Tates Century of Images exhibition in 1995, an exhibiton which catapulted him into recognition as a modern day master of romantic impressionism. His work has since been included in many prestigious collections including The Royal Academy and Oxfords Ashmolean Museum.
We were delighted to hold a retrospective for Michael here at The Summerhouse in the Summer of 2015, and have long enjoyed a close working relationship with him through which we have displayed some utterly breath taking pieces.
Michael is truly a man who lives to paint, and the passion for his craft is evident within each of his pieces, whether it be the magic of a distinctive sunset or the energy that fuels a vibrant field of poppies, Strang's unique and instantly recognisable textured brush technique demonstrate a talent which truly makes him one of the most reputable painters of the moment, and widely regarded as Britains best living impressionist painter.
TO SUBMIT WORK TO THE SUMMERHOUSE GALLERY
Here at The Summerhouse we love to support both established and new, up and coming artists with an affinity to Cornwall. We do recieve a very large volume of submissions, and although we take care to view every artists work, it is very difficult to discuss work with every single artist who gets in touch.
Please send us a selection of work which you feel best represents you, along with an artists statement and a list of other galleries which represent your work if applicable. You can email this to email@example.com or post to our address, with contact details (email or telephone) which we can reach you via should your application be successful.
We look forward to hearing from you.
