Alan is from Dublin and has exhibited with the Lavelle Art Gallery since it opened in 1988. Alan began his career as a traditional landscape artist and over the years his style has become more experimental. Today Alan paints ‘softscapes’ which are abstract versions of the familiar landscape using carefully selected blocks of colour. His subject matter often includes figures, animals and musicians. Perspective is largely ignored or exaggerated in the search for a harmonious composition. Alans work is in private collections all over the world.
