Alan Stratford

Alan Stratford is a contemporary British artist based in Cornwall who responds to the landscape surrounding him through atmospheric and emotionally charged oil paintings. Alan's work carries a semi-abstracted force which allows the paintings to become autonomous as well as recalling familiar scenes and observations. With a degree in Commercial Graphics from Bristol, Alan has a strong background within the creative industry but it is through his paintings that he has found his way forward, now being represented by numerous galleries across Cornwall. With an unrelenting passion for new discoveries, Alan gathers not only a rich collection of resource material through walking the Cornish landscape but, he is also consistently trying new techniques within painting and allowing play and experimentation to navigate his handling of his material. This collection of paintings shows Alan's balance between figurative and abstract feeling and how this harmony can create evocative and dramatic paintings filled with big skies, crashing waves and the effervescence of changing light.
