Mike Staniford is a contemporary Australian artist, inspired by the bold colours of nature and the celebration of its shapes and forms. Mike’s paintings are intuitive and gestural and seek to reinterpret the landscape, to distill down its complexity and eliminate the unnecessary.
“I want to enjoy the freedom to work on my own terms. To explore the thought process that continues even when the painting is finished. While the bush, the coast or the ocean sets the scene, the real purpose of the image is nature as a powerful, dynamic force.”
