Oil by Mike Tingle
Signman and Ariadne
Nonsense is a guiding force in my approach to making art. I'm often asking myself What would the Jabberwock do? , and taking no notice of the answer. Edward Lear's Owl and Pussycat is such a perfect poem, delicate and strong, full of great images. I like to think of it as a great Myth, like Tristan and Isolde.
I trained at Bath Academy of Art,Corsham, and have been a member of Gainsborough's House Printworkshop, Sudbury, Suffolk. I am a member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen, and find alot of inspiration from the ceramics and jewellery.
