moreThe lucid landscapes of painter Mike Gough are brimming with a quiet intimacy. At its core, his practice explores how our relationship with the natural world connects and defines us. Working in mixed media, he endeavors to create familiar meditative spaces that exhibit a personal journey, but simultaneously invite the viewer to insert themselves in the narrative.
Gough’s interest in the elusive quality of memory has always been an invariable feature in his art practice. Rooted in memories of his upbringing in Newfoundland, Gough’s paintings are autobiographical but carry universal narratives. In the absence of detail there is an opportunity for one’s own memories to develop. An expansive solitude and sense of isolation is met with a universal feeling of what it means to belong.
This unique 20 inch square mixed media composition on wood panel is wired and ready to hang. This artwork is signed by the artist on the back. The sides of this artwork are painted and it does not require framing. Convenient local Los Angeles delivery. Affordable Continental U.S. and international shipping. This artwork comes with a certificate of authenticity issued by the gallery.
These paintings partially stem from a fear of memory loss as a result of experiences with Alzheimer’s in his family. Not only does the painting process exercise Gough’s memory, but the paintings themselves act as records of his experience becoming a blend of reality and idealism. They are not painted from photographs; the places are not precisely rendered and the experiences are not accurately told, but they are Gough’s authentic recollection of them. The intent of his work is to create a patchwork map of memories as a guide back to the authenticity of human feeling.
Mike Gough has exhibited both nationally and internationally and his work appears in private, corporate, and public collections in England and Canada, including The Rooms Provincial Art Gallery, Humber College, Sir Wilfred Grenfell College, The City of St. John’s, and Global Affairs Canada.
Gough was the winner of the Excellence in Visual Arts People’s Choice Award in 2015 and was shortlisted for the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council Emerging Artist of the Year in 2013. He has been the recipient of numerous Arts and Letters Awards and was selected for both the Elbow Room Residency Program at the Rooms Provincial Art Gallery and the Artist in Residence at 2 Rooms Contemporary Art Projects. less
