Alan King

"After nearly thirty years in teaching, I started to paint full time in 1997. I have enjoyed the experience of trying to put into practice the work ethic and lessons of teaching art full time. I am interested in the process of painting and am constantly investigating and reading about the materials and the craft of painting.

The Red Hat continues to be a major theme within my work. Storytelling and a love of Renaissance Italian Art are the roots of development of my work. I try to create images that are visually compelling and which form a bond with the spectator. Many of the images and the titles used have their source in literature and poetry. This leads to ideas, which are developed, with life models and a miniature theatre, which I built. Manakins and backgrounds are positioned and photographed with different lighting effects. It is my intention that each painting has a narrative aspect that can be interpreted by each person in a different way." Alan King
