Paul Milichip, Painter

My paintings carry through my idea of dynamic space; in my work I use the space surrounding objects and figures to exert reciprocal pressure throughout the picture. There are no negative spaces and I use this abstract concept in a figurative context. I use watercolour with collage and crayon to create the fluidity which my concept requires but I also use oils, mainly for larger works.

I have exhibited widely since my first London exhibition in Gallery One and my paintings have been bought for public collections, including The Arts Council of Great Britain, Leicester Museum, Liverpool University, Durham County Museum, Nuffield foundation, Buckinghamshire County Gallery and Milton Keynes Corporation together with many private collections.
