Alan Salisbury

Alan Salisbury is based in Barry, Wales, and was the winner of the 2008 Wales Portrait Award.ALAN SALISBURY -
He was born in Preston, Lancashire and studied painting at Manchester and Liverpool Colleges of Art and the Royal College of Art, London. An elected member of the Royal Cambrian Society, he has lived in Wales since 1974 working at the University of Glamorgan where he was Principal Lecturer in Painting and Field Leader in Arts and Media. He has now left to concentrate on his own artistic practice although he maintains contact with the University as an External Fellow. This exhibition is a continuation of an approach to contemporary ‘Still Life’ painting that Alan has been absorbed with for a number of years. He uses art historical sources which are then subverted in various ways; employing trompe l'oeil devices, humour and irony to explore postmodern concepts of visual production.
