” My current landscape paintings are derived from sites that are both visually compelling and charged with implications of use, development and ownership. The conditions of the landscape including light, color, texture and atmosphere give meaning to place. The transformation of land and sky through industry and enterprise may be deliberate, or simply the unintended consequence of the human impact on a fragile environment. My work is both a response to and an interpretation of the world, but it also imparts sentiment through projection that comes from a perspective of anxiety about the condition of landscape and nature in our world today. I endeavor to create a fictional response to an observed phenomenon, a metaphor that is infused with a blend of celebration, apprehension and doubt about our place in the natural world. In this manner, this work may allude to the past and simultaneously project into the future. My paintings are a response to the landscape we inhabit with all its complexity and layered meanings.” – Philip Govedare

” I am a figurative realist painter and predominantly specialise in portraiture. I work in a highly detailed, intensely realistic manner and aim for an absolutely pure and objective likeness. Specific environments and narrative objects are often extremely important ingredients to my portraits as they can help to reflect and reinforce the sitters identity. I seek to convey people in the most understanding, intimate and sympathetic way that I can .” – Andrew Tift

Michael works quietly and carefully on one painting at a time, spending about three months over each composition. On graduating from Goldsmiths School of Art in 1973, he determined to devote his time to working at a single canvas, while funding himself by working evenings at a pub in Greenwich. When the picture was completed, and after a period of reflection, he created another. These were subsequently exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Encouraged by the response, and selling both pictures, he decided to give up the pub job. He has continued to produce his extraordinary paintings, more or less without a break, until the present. With his wife Caroline, he moved in 1975 to a stone cottage on the edge of the Yorkshire moors, near Haworth. After the birth of their daughter, Ellen (1976), the family moved to a disused chapel in Dorset. In 1980, their son, Richard, was born. Caroline and Michael now live in an old pub in the Dorset village of Childe Okeford. Website here.
