Chalford Hare

About the Hare

The Chalford Hare design is based around the landscapes and vernacular architecture evident in the Golden Valley in and around Chalford. The Hare is representational of the community as a hub for small businesses and residential dwellings that inhabit the valley. The area is in the AONB with a great community spirit and I hope this hare represents a contemporary record of the valley as it stands today in 2018.

Working as freelance artist and designer, he lives and works in central London and rural Gloucestershire.

For the last 15 years Mike has produced art working to commissions for designers architects and corporations. For the most part, the artwork has been site specific.

Artworks are driven by a client’s brief although Mike’s main interest is modern radical British landscapes and cityscapes.

His work is between figurative and abstract and is not restricted in materials or methods used in the image making process.

Mike’s work is made to convey the energy and mood of ever-changing, enclosed and open landscapes.  It is hoped that this is evident in the work he produces.

He has exhibited work at various galleries and events over the last few years – most notably:

In London:

The Royal Academy of Arts London Summer Exhibition (2015 and 2016), The Mall Galleries (2017) and Christies Fine Art (2015 and 2016).

In the Cotswolds:

The Paragon Gallery, Cheltenham (2017), The Victoria Art Gallery, Bath (2017) and The Corinium Museum, Cirencester (2017).
