Mike Worrall Forthcoming Show

Mike Worrall - Artist

Artistic licence is employed through optical illusions, reflected interiors and time-lapse scenery. Eccentric figures are mysteriously reflected or placed in polished brass and curved glass shopfronts, baroque tree-lined avenues, and intricately cobblestoned streets. There is an obsessive dedication to his historically-placed scenery – culminating in moody tableaus with a language reminiscent of the early modern aspects of the Renaissance era and Humanism. Irony and wit underscores a vaudevillian celebration of life, a Pan’s labyrinth of possibilities, allowing the viewer’s imagination to soar.

Mike Worrall was born in 1942 in Matlock Derbyshire, UK. He has worked in the feature film industry as an “ideas artist”, and a Worrall painting famously inspired director Roman Polanski’s film Macbeth. Based in NSW, Australia, Worrall has been a practicing artist since the early 1960s, exhibiting both locally and internationally.
