Michael Hales is an abstract artist in Tipperary. He was born and raised in Maidenhead, Uk. He currently lives in Emly, Co. Tipperary working from his own studio. He studied Fine Art at Margaret Street, Birmingham School of Art and Design in the early 1990’s. Abstract art works by artists such as Bridget Riley, Sean Scully and Gerhard Richter are strong influences.
Michael Hales has developed his artist practice through working in encaustics, combining the fluidity of the beeswax & damar resin with the vibrancy of oil painting. Through this bold use of colour applied in layers using heat and carving previous strata the abstract art is developed.
When we focus our attention to the customary and the normal and review with a deeper sensibility there will always be surprises. Using a combination of satellite imagery, still lifes and snapshots the artist can use abstract art paintings to describe a place. There is no one particular viewpoint but a sense of pieces and objects considered and explored.
