“Every time I lift a paintbrush I feel a continuum with every painter, past present and future. For me, paintings are always alive, offering us glimpses into parallel universes. In this context, making my work seems like time travel, a passport to the vast variety of planets that make up the galaxy of painting. Here time is elastic, interchangeable and, ultimately, a mirage!” Michael Vale – Jan 2019
Michael Vale, winner of the 2018 Hutchins Prize, is a Melbourne-based painter and film maker whose work gravitates towards the gothic and the absurd. He is a senior lecturer in the School of Fine Art at Monash University.
