COMING UP: Michael Aubrey and Fredrik KB / A Contrast in Styles
This is Michael Aubrey’s third exhibition at The Coningsby Gallery and he has developed an enthusiastic following amongst collectors who comment on the paintings’ sense of sheer exuberance, and on the lasting pleasure which they bring to their owners. Michael’s masterly handling of tone and colour have established him internationally as a leading watercolour impressionist. Whilst being widely varied in subject matter his paintings all display similar qualities of dynamic lighting, vibrant colour and a bold, unerring sense of composition. Even commonplace subjects seem to leap into dramatic life under his touch, perhaps reflecting his experience as a stage designer.
Michael is a Fellow of the British Watercolour Society and his work is to be found in public and private collections internationally ; over 30 solo exhibitions have been held in London, Paris and other capitals including those in Australia, Malaysia and Sri Lanka, some under the patronage of the British Council, which has described him as painting “ in the finest English watercolour tradition”.
He lives in a 15th century drovers’ inn in Oundle, Northamptonshire, where he has his studio and gallery, in which work may be viewed by appointment.
