COMIC CHICKS

Stuart McAlpine Miller paints dreams and visions in which the onlooker feels like a participant in the frame. Technically brilliant, his provocative and visually arresting images of beautiful women and nostalgic cartoon images are a winning combination

Scottish-born artist Stuart McAlpine Miller, a graduate of Glasgow School of Art, displays all the characteristics of his home nation – tenacity, determination and a wry sense of humour. “Unlike a lot of artists I am a painter who owns up to living in 2012 – I do live in the real world and my art reflects this” says McAlpine Miller. He freely admits that he has been toiling at the coalface of the art world for the last twenty years and has only recently won the critical recognition he deserves. His distinctive and striking work, featuring stylish, cool 'supermodelesque' women, superimposed over brightly coloured cartoons in an illusionary world of comic book characters have hit a nerve with experienced col-

lectors and everyday art lovers alike. His overt commentary on the superficiality of fame and celebrity, the Western preoccupation with consumerism and ostentatious signs of wealth and beauty are his stock in trade, all beautifully executed with the most technically deft hand. “Surreal in feel, hidden dangers appear to lurk beneath the surface, as pop images jump off the canvas and the optical illusion strikes” is McAlpine Miller’s • take on his new collection.

influenced by Andy Warhol following the cult painters ethos that art is ultimately ‘a throw away thing that has value’. 'Warhol's views on mass consumerism and the way he translated these into his art is something I really relate to and I hope my art does something similar and stands the test of time” explains McAlpine Miller. The new collection comprises four outstanding examples of his work, all of which are riotous images of colour and movement. In Sunbather To Fear the image is of a confident and beautiful young girl, oblivious to her surroundings and afraid of nothing. “I deliberately created a media cliché of the controlled pose, but in the background there is a sense of confusion and collision that something bad is going to happen - a semblance of commotion” explains McAlpine Miller, a theme he also explores in The Leader Of The Gang. Adding concern via the anarchic background imagery this painting reveals the fragile confidence of the main female image who is superimposed over scenes of impending chaos. Not afraid of being contentious, Salute To The Captain is a blatant commentary on American imperialism and its powerful influence over all our lives “I think subliminally we take so 4 many references from America and I wanted to reflect this – both the good and the bad” says McAlpine Miller as he offers up an act of ‘mimicry’ in the salute, which suggests a degree of political manipulation.

As much an ‘illusionist’ as a technically assured painter, McAlpine Miller shows an astonishing craftsmanship painting in oils but with the precision layering of a watercolourist it is a technique he has been developing over 15 years. “It is about illusion based upon colour and light, and although I work in oils I like the fact that it ends up with a computer generated feel,” says McAlpine Miller who only began producing cartoon images two years ago. It is a fascinating technique which blends the painted effects of transparency, while imitating technology with the invisible see-through layering mimicking the computer screen.

Latest news from the world of fine art

Women enjoying Ladies' Day at Royal Ascot earlier this year were wowed by a striking new hat commissioned by Washington Green. A vibrant fusion of fashion and art, the hat was designed by acclaimed milliner, Hayley Marsden and inspired by the work of artist, Louise Dear. At an impressive 3ft tall and 3ft wide, the headwear caused quite a stir, taking one of Louise’s most iconic prints and adapting it into a fashionable and stylish piece of eye-catching headwear.

April 2012 The Tate Modern unveils a new underground space called The Tanks. Tate's director, Nicholas Serota, stated that "they are the first spaces dedicated permanently to live art, installation and performance in any museum building anywhere in the world." May 2012 Edvard Munch's ‘The Scream’ sells for $119.9m (£74m), making it the most expensive artwork ever sold at auction. The work, created in 1895, goes under the hammer at Sotheby’s in New York and sells in just 12 minutes. June 2012 US Artist Aleah Chapin wins £25,000 BP Portrait Award 2012 with portrait of ‘Auntie’. Her nude painting of a family friend goes on display in the National Gallery. July 2012 Herbert Vogel, the infamous art collector who amassed a collection of over 5,000 works, dies aged 89. Herbert was amongst the earliest collectors who championed minimal and conceptual art in the 1960s. August 2012 Italian museum director Antonio Manfredi burns art collection in protest at government art budget cuts. The outspoken director hopes to inspire a reversal of the harsh austerity measures that have laid particularly high burdens on the shoulders of Italy’s cultural sector. He called his protest “an art war to prevent the destruction of culture”.

The master of disguise exhibits his finest work An exhibition of new original paintings by John Myatt is unveiled at the Waterhall, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery Famed for his part in the most ingenious art con of the 20th century; John Myatt is critically acclaimed the world over as the ‘convicted art forger made good’ who created and sold ‘genuine fakes’ of the world’s most sought after masterpieces. With a prison sentence, a popular Sky Arts series and a movie in the pipeline all painting the picture of his colourful life, this latest venture sees Myatt put his skills to legitimate use as he unveils Provenance; the biggestever exhibition of his own original paintings alongside the ‘genuine fakes’, typically associated with his work. Launching in conjunction with Washington Green Fine Art, the

exhibition will begin on Saturday 29th September at the Waterhall gallery, part of the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, with special appearances from John Myatt himself and run through to Sunday 14th October 2012. Provenance will feature over 70 original works including neverseen-in-public-before pieces by the acclaimed artist. The collection also revisits paintings of Myatt’s favourite artists including Monet, Picasso, Matisse, Giacometti and Chagall as well as showcasing one of the original pieces that featured in 'Fame in the Frame' television show, - actor and comedian Stephen Fry in the style of Diego Velazquez's portrait of Pope Innocent X.

John Myatt

The TV series saw celebrity portraits painted in the style of a famous artist. These include; Paul O’Grady in Grant Wood’s American Gothic; Frank Skinner in Vincent van Gogh’s Self Portrait 1888; and Myleene Klass in Johannes Vermeer’s Girl With The Pearl Earring. Struggling to bring up two small children on an art teacher’s wage, Myatt’s career as a ‘genuine faker’ started in 1986 when he placed an advert in Private Eye offering genuine ‘19th and 20th century fakes for £200’. As Myatt puts it, these were not replicas but works that the likes of Monet or Picasso might have painted ‘if they had had time’. Impressed customer, 'Professor John Drewe', a man claiming to be a nuclear physicist, commissioned Myatt to produce a number of paintings, which he later had valued at Christie’s in London for over £25,000. This, admits Myatt, ‘was the moment the legitimate business stopped and the crime began’ as the pair went into business together passing off 200 more fakes over seven years, which were later sold through leading auction houses in London

and New York. Over 120 of which are still in circulation today, as only 80 were ever recovered by police. Both were convicted of fraud and Myatt was sentenced to 12 months in Brixton prison. After serving just six months of this sentence, he was released in June 1999 on good behaviour and had a ready-and-waiting client base, all eager to buy a piece of art from the likeable man behind one of the biggest art frauds of the 20th century. These days Myatt’s legitimate fakes may be signed ‘Monet’ but are clearly marked ‘John Myatt: Genuine Fakes’ on the reverse. Giving people the chance to display their own Monet-style print gives me such delight, says Myatt: “Even those that are lucky enough to own a £2million original typically often can’t display it on their walls, for insurance reasons. It seems such a shame to have something so beautiful hidden away in the bank.” Myatt’s genuine fakes also make up the exciting collection that will be available to view at the Waterhall from Saturday 29th September, priced from £7,500 to £50,000. Commenting on the upcoming ‘Provenance’ exhibition, Myatt said: “This is the first

time my own original work will be shown alongside the ‘genuine fakes’ which are usually associated with my name. “The entire collection has been put together over a long period of time, building on the exciting turn of events and experiences my life has taken me on including the time I spent in prison. The

originals that will be on view have all come out of my own private collection. They have been on the walls at my home, but now for the first-time I am giving other members of the public the chance to see them. “The exhibition at the Waterhall gallery is the biggest exhibition of my work to date, but what makes

it even more humbling for me is that this museum is in my own backyard. Born in Stoke on Trent and bred in the Midlands, I used to visit the museum every week when I lived in Lichfield, to simply look at the gallery. It is an honour after all these years to go back and instead see my own artwork on view.

“I intend to spend as much time at the exhibition as possible and am looking forward to meeting and listening to the views of the public and other artists that come to see it.” Glyn Washington, of Washington Green Fine Art and Castle Galleries, comments: “The life of artist John Myatt is absolutely fascinating, reading very much like the pages of a best-selling novel. “Each of the pieces in this new collection showcase Myatt at his very best, using his trademark trickery of household emulsion mixed with KY jelly to add body and fluidity to his brushstrokes. “The level of superior sophistication seen in all his work is phenomenal and even more captivating, given the deception we now know about. He is one of the most sought after artists in the contemporary world which is why we have also produced a collection of six limited edition pieces to accompany the museum exhibition.” Famed art critic David Lee adds: “Since he came out of prison John has turned his dishonesty to honest profit, producing versions of masterpieces for those who admire but can’t afford the multimillion pound originals. “A fascinating aspect of what John does is the way looking at what he paints is complicated by a personal history one can’t overlook. You aren’t just getting a copy of a masterpiece or an interpretation of a style by a great copier, you’re getting the work of someone whose efforts were at one time actually confused with the real thing. He is asking us to decide for ourselves if the authenticity of what we see is quite as important as we are led to believe it is.” Gallery 'Provenance' the limited edition collection will be available in Castle Galleries throughout the country this autumn. And 'Provenance' the museum exhibition opens on 29 September at the Waterhall, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Greg Crayola Simkins Los Angeles based artist, who has made cartoon and graffiti his trademark.

Bob Barker

Here Yesterday Canvas edition of 195 Image 20¾" x 26" Framed £565

as time goes by Bob Barker's evocative new collection goes on tour

It only takes a glance at Bob Barker's paintings to be instantly transported back to the days when childhood was a time of simple pleasures. His new collection can't fail to tug at the heartstrings. With a wistful, almost ethereal feel, the six pieces beautifully capture Bob's nostalgic memories of his early years growing up in Yorkshire. "After school I used to walk to the mill where my mother worked, and I still remember the lovely smell of the looms and all the people I talked to there", he said. "As an adult, I see old weaver's cottages, mills, cobbled streets and F I N E A R T C OL L E C T OR

AU T U M N 2 01 2

Yorkshire stone flags virtually on my doorstep. The inspiration for my work is their history and my memories, and when I paint I'm looking back at my childhood through adult eyes". The predominant greys of the oil paintings are infused with a wonderfully luminous and translucent quality, so that far from being colourless and gloomy, every scene glows with vivid life. One of the ways that Bob creates this enchanting effect is through his own take on the classical Grisaille method. "I use the same principle but instead of overlaying colour, I use

black and white and all shades in between and just add splashes of colour ", said Bob. "I build up layer upon layer, and each one is thinner. I use a tiny amount of paint pigment thinned with a lot of different oils, which keeps the layers transparent and lets what's underneath shine through. This makes the paintings look like they are lit from within and allows me to create real depth - even in dark, shadowy corners." His method produces a captivating and often unexpected feel. In Into Every Life A Little Rain, for example, the inner light makes the rain seem wondrous and magical rather than wet and cold. In Here Yesterday, it gives a sense of carefree confidence in what could otherwise be a lonely scene, and in pieces such as Just Chips and Whale Of A Time, it creates palpable energy.

Going deeper

Bob also uses other classical techniques, such as Ciaro-

scuro for dramatic effect and Repoussoir as a compositional tool. "I create atmosphere and drama through absolute contrasts between the brightest brights and the darkest darks," explained Bob. "One of my great influences in this respect is John Atkinson Grimshaw, a Victorian

era artist from Leeds, whose own use of the method earned him the name The Painter of Moonlight." The lamp lighter in With Ladder & With Light showcases Bob's use of Repoussoir to create depth in the painting. Before becoming a full time artist, he

trained as a photographer, and ran his own video production company for over 20 years. "I became very skilled at creating depth of field and focusing people's attention where I wanted it to be. I'm probably using what I learned then and applying it in my paintings."

A touch of this, a bit of that

F I N E A R T C OL L E C T OR

AU T U M N 2 01 2

The pieces that Bob creates are very much an evolution, and often happen almost of their own accord. "When I sit down to work, I usually have an idea of what I want to do," said Bob, "but when I start

4

applying paint, what I had in mind changes in an instant and becomes better. I paint the sky first and however it turns out, sets the mood for the whole painting. Then I compose the piece as I go along." He also spends a lot of time looking at his work on the canvas. "I tend to have 10 or 15 minute bursts of painting then I sit back and just look for a while. When I start painting again I apply a touch of this and a bit of that wherever it feels right. My brushstrokes tend to take over at that point and seem to have a life of their own. Sometimes I look at a painting I'm pleased with and think - where did that come from?" Gallery 'As Time Goes By' will be exhibited across Great Britain, with Bob Barker making some special appearance in selected Castle Galleries.

Techniques of the Old Masters Ciaroscuro The hallmark of Caravaggio, literally meaning 'light dark' in Italian, involves skillfully balancing light and dark contrasts to create a dramatic feel. Grisaille The classic oil painting technique originally involved layering glazes of colour on top of a thin monotone base - usually grey - to create a rich, lustrous finished surface. It was widely borrowed from Old Masters such as Rembrandt and Rubens. Repoussoir This compositional tool creates the illusion of depth by focusing the eye on something large in the foreground, with 17th Century Dutch masters such as Vermeer adapting the technique in various ways.

Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan is one of the universe’s eternal mysteries. As a man, he is widely regarded as one of the most significant songwriters and musicians the world has ever seen. He is revered by many as being a modern day sage and millions of people around the globe cite him as being their inspiration, their influence, their icon. And yet, little is known of the man himself – rarely does Mr. Dylan give an interview, seldom will he pass comment (other than through his music) and on the few occasions he is seen outside of performances, never expect a pose for a photograph that may come so readily from others in the public eye. Bob Dylan very much keeps himself to himself, which is one of the reasons The Drawn Blank Series is so fascinating. In the way that Dylan tells a story through his music, with each sketch in The Drawn Blank Series, he narrates a story. But his art and his music are mutually exclusive; these graphics are not here to support the narrative of Dylan’s songs, they stand,

Demonstrating yet again Dylan’s irrepressible compulsion to create, observe and, at times, provoke. With each piece, we get a unique opportunity to view the world as he sees it; a rare and privileged glimpse into the mind of a famously restless artist. There are many facets of these pieces for us to contemplate. The subject matter: very often incredibly ordinary, perhaps some might say mundane, a single bicycle, an unoccupied room, a truck. And then, notably, the colour: Dylan has created numerous colour ways of each scene. In the same way that each Dylan song is almost malleable and fluid, changing slightly with each rendition, a skipped word here, added emotion there, these graphics take on a new meaning or a new • feeling with each change in colour;

this, the element that so often leads us to draw comparisons to Andy Warhol before him. The simplicity of the common-place subject matter belies a deeper, more complex narrative. Each piece, unmistakably speaks of an observer, an outsider looking in. These are not scenes of inclusion; the painter deliberately puts us, the viewer, on the periphery. Are we seeing through the lens of a contented and impartial observer or a lonely, melancholy outsider? But then, the colour! Contrary to some opinions, Dylan’s pieces are not all muted colours and subtle shadings. Vista from a Balcony for example, in the 2012 collection - a vivid red, almost apocalyptic, river scene, with the flurry of (perhaps frantic) activity contrasts sharply with the blue serenity of a day spent boating on the river, seen in the very first 2008

collection. Indeed, what a wonderful visual dichotomy were the two to be displayed side by side. The new collection features eight pieces, with House on Union Street being the stand-out new addition for 2012. Never-before-published, Dylan’s brush dances loosely through the brilliant blue sky, finally coming to rest at the house, on Union Street; a solitary form on an unfamiliar street, Dylan’s representation of the transitory world of life on the road. It was Marcel Proust that said “the real voyage of discovery lies not in seeking new lands, but in seeing with fresh eyes.” Dylan does just this, and asks, us, the viewer to do the same. Through the seven other graphics in this new collection he revisits some familiar scenes with new flourishes of colour; challenging us to reconsider each image, to view it not for what

it once was, but what it has now become; in its new light, with its new colour, its new life. In this the year that Dylan was awarded the Presidential Medal of Honour by President Barack Obama, he continues to garner great public interest. The September release of his 35th studio album, ‘Tempest’ marks 50 illustrious years as a recording artist and performer and The Drawn Blank Series continues to give Dylan's fans previously unexpected wonderment, reaffirming their faith in one of the greatest creative minds of our time. First published in Art of England magazine, September 2012. Gallery The Drawn Blank Series 2012 portfolio of 8 graphics is still available in Castle Galleries around the country.

Large canvas Edition of 50 Image 36" x 36" Framed £995

COURTLY COWS

Taking on the Old Masters at their own game, Caroline Shotton has reinvented the art of bovine portraiture in her altogether more serious new collection, The Tudors

As one of the fastest selling contemporary artists in the UK, Caroline Shotton’s new collection of Tudor portraits featuring her trademark cows marks a major development in style and technique. “I really wanted to go a little more highbrow, maybe a bit more serious and push things to a new level” explains Shotton who says her latest collection of cow portraits represent a modern day reinterpretation of the Old Masters “Albeit with a bovine twist!” The collection of four paintings depict three familiar historical figures - Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, William Shakespeare and wild card comic duo, Black Udder And Bulldrick (she may be serious now but CaroF I N E A R T C OL L E C T OR

line is never one to shy away from a good pun!) All beautifully display her recently honed oil painting skills and indicate a great sense of artistic confidence with a development in style and content. Gone are the simplistic cow portraits that were simply done in Shotton’s words ‘to raise a smile.’ Reviewing this progression she says “I feel I have come full circle in many ways and have rediscovered my natural style with intricate patterns, rich fabrics and Baroque lighting.” Henry VIII is shown as bullish and dominant and Shotton says inserting eyelids and eyebrows (which she had not done with her previous cow portraits) helps lend a more human characteristic to each cow portrait. • “I have always

seen the eye as crucial to showing the subtlest nuance.” Here Henry is proud and strong with his direct gaze and Elizabeth I, with her slightly coquettish look is flirtatious as her eyes look downwards. Shotton says the portraits created in the Tudor period were very two dimensional, so with the William Shakespeare portrait she decided to include the sonnet ‘Shall I compare thee to a summers day’ in the background to add depth, with the words floating from his quill. With Black Udder And Bulldrick she says it was important that she captured the juxtaposition of characters in ‘cow form.’ “Black Udder is belittling a playful Bulldrick and his condescending sneer goes completely over Bulldrick’s vacant head - to what I hope is comic effect.”

Shotton conducted painstaking research at the National Portrait Gallery and her attention to detail is meticulous “I used a mixture of portraits for reference and paid great attention to the tailoring and jewellery design of the period” she explains. Reading biographies of her famous subjects also helped inform her work. “Luckily I do have the patience of a saint” laughs Shotton who says she worked through the night on several occasions as she became so engrossed in painting the intricate lace collars and elaborate clothing. “I really set myself a challenge with these paintings in terms of what I wanted to achieve, and the use of light and shadow is very prominent in this collection as I built up layers of paint to create a uniformly atmospheric palette.” Shotton freely admits to be being inspired by what she calls ‘the usual suspects’ - Michelangelo, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio, Rubens and Rembrandt, but her real passion for

embarking on this ambitious collection was as a result of a painting which ‘mesmerised’ her as a child. ‘The Ambassadors’ by Hans Holbein the Younger is meticulously rendered and encompasses wonderful portraiture, still life and the famous anamorphic skull, explains Shotton, who maintains it combines all the elements of great portrait painting that she has tried to emulate. “I hope these paintings will spark an interest in history for some collectors – I know my eight year old son was fascinated by them because they were ‘cows in Tudor costume’, whereas he would not have looked twice at a human portrait of that time” says Shotton, who feels justifiably proud of this accomplished collection which marks a major watershed in terms of her artistic talent and development. Gallery 'The Tudors' by Caroline Shotton will be exhibited in Castle Galleries around Great Britain this autumn. castlegalleries.com

Monet Gallery 3-D edition of 95 Image 17" x 27" Framed £650

Putting art into perspective All is definitely not what it seems in artist John Wilson's latest collection. He employs the reverse perspective technique, an eye-catching method that creates the illusion of the painting “moving” with the viewer. Add that to miniature facsimiles of some of the greatest paintings in the world, juxtaposed with naïve, childlike figures, and the result is absolutely intriguing.

Placing the playschool crayon drawing next to a Lowry print that was on his wall at home, Wilson began to explore the idea that even the greatest artists throughout history would have begun their careers drawing similar simple figures. It was then he began putting together the two seemingly paradoxical pieces of art: miniature facsimiles of celebrated paintings by some of the world’s most famous masters viewed in a gallery by the charismatic “children’s” figures, all based on real drawings by youngsters. Now, 17 years later, and with the format still popular among eager art lovers, Wilson has brought out a new limited edition collection for Castle Galleries and he is looking forward to meeting collectors on a three-month tour, which will take him to Castle Galleries in Cambridge, Norwich, Chester, Bristol, Harrogate, to name just a few. His five new works use the reverse perspective technique, an eyecatching method that he began to F I N E A R T C OL L E C T OR

experiment with about six years ago, creating the illusion of the painting “moving” with the viewer. Inspired by reverse perspective master Patrick Hughes, Wilson is now renowned for the technique, but it is not just this method that makes Wilson’s paintings fascinating. Take a look at the incredible detail of the “Mini Masters”. Although they measure just a couple of inches, they can take anything up to five hours to complete and some of his works have featured as many as 35 miniature paintings. “There can be a lot of work in that, but I try to mix the complex ones with simpler paintings that don’t take as long to paint,” says the artist whose home studio overlooks Knaresborough Valley in North Yorkshire. “I buy a lot of art books from charity shops and I have

to be quite ruthless with them and cut out the page I want and clip it onto my canvas or board so that I can get the colours and everything right. “It has to be exact because I know when people look at it they will compare it with the original. I’ve been asked before if I cut them out and stick them on, but everything is painted by hand. It takes a lot of patience.” Constable, Canaletto, Lichtenstein, Klimt, Da Vinci, Renoir, and Matisse have all come under Wilson’s scrutiny over the years and his latest collection features more miniature masterpieces.

Van Gogh Gallery features seven of the post-Impressionist’s works in painstaking detail. Split into three sections, with two 3D cones, this work – like about half of his artwork – has no figures in it because the reverse perspective technique with the jutting out gallery walls makes it difficult to place them. Family Life brings together some of his previous works: small sections of One Big Happy Family; With A Little Help From My Friend; Bedtime Story; and Bath Time peep from behind doors, while on the “landing” a gallery wall

features two of the best-selling kitsch prints of all time. Poolside Gallery takes its inspiration from David Hockney’s pop art painting A Bigger Splash, Wilson’s favourite work by his fellow Yorkshire-born artist. Although there are subtle differences to the background from the 1967 Hockney piece, it maintains the bright and vibrant California colours and he adds seven childish figures and one additional hallmark naïve figure, a black dog seen from the side. • Complementary artworks by AU T U M N 2 01 2

Your World, Our Art Do you recognise the art that Wilson has featured in his latest limited edition collection? modern artists add contrast. Like the Van Gogh Gallery, the Monet Gallery features seven artworks by the French impressionist, all of which are copied in perfect miniature detail, while Parallel World is a tribute to the world of Surrealism. So how does Wilson choose the Mini Masters? “I like to choose paintings I like myself, although the worst ones to do are portraits, like the Mona Lisa and Van Gogh, which is the size of a postage stamp,” he says. He tries to steer clear of Gaugin, an artist who John confesses to not being particularly fond of. He also admits to avoiding Pre-Raphaelite paintings, because of the sheer detail and darkness on the canvases. “I like to keep my pieces happy, with bright colours,” he adds. And with the childlike figures exuding an innocence that only youngsters understand, you cannot help but smile. Gallery This eye-catching collection by John Wilson will be exhibited in Castle Galleries around Great Britain this autumn.
