Artist in the Spotlight – Michael Gorman

In a career spanning five decades, Michael Gorman has work in several international collections (Prince Meurat Collection, Paris; Heineken Collection, Netherlands; Nuremburg Museum, Germany; Royal Albert Museum, Exeter; Leicester City Museum) and has exhibited widely (John Moores, Liverpool; The Serpentine Gallery, London; Ikon Gallery, Birmingham; Grand Palais, Paris; Katzen Gallery, New York).

A key figure in the burgeoning Photorealist movement of the late 1960s, he continues to create arresting visual images which delight and provoke in equal measure. Working in a figurative, photorealist idiom, with an immediately identifiable style, his subject matter is both aesthetic and political.

His paintings deliver a sensual, joyous response to the stunning Mediterranean coast, the human form or to Classical architecture. But equally, Michael Gorman’s work explores a profound fascination with shifting cultural boundaries and the clash of old/new, ancient/modern, traditional/contemporary.
