Deeply engaged in the exploration of the unconventional worlds between our inner and outer experiences, Michael Vale paints melancholic landscapes inhabited by absurdist figures. Informed by the works of visionary writers such as Arthur Rimbaud and Lewis Carroll, and engaging with lyrical surrealism, Vale succeeds in transporting the viewer to an atmospheric plane of netherworldy experience.
Michael Vale is a visual artist, writer, curator and academic. He has held 21 solo exhibitions since 1986, as well as curating and participating in numerous group exhibitions and short film festivals.
