Michael Palmer

MA Fine Art - Farnham

Michael Palmer approaches painting as a formal exercise, with a re-occurring theme exploring loss, vulnerability, and isolation. Introducing us to the world seen through his own photographic archive and media coverage depicting the socio-economic history of our times. Personal and social fragilities combine with societies fractures, captured in a single moment, a sense of dilemma and tension identifies his work. The medium amplifies existing processes, it changes scale, perspective, and form. This approach helps to convey his own authority to the subject and by degree removes it from the original source material, whilst remaining present within it.
