biography

MILES COLE

In 2012 I returned to painting after a fifteen year hiatus during which time I carved out a successful career as an illustrator. My work is rooted in the tradition of British and European post-war Modernism particularly abstract painting, drawing inspiration from various sources such as coastal landscape, the city and its architecture and geometric design. These are a catalyst for what then becomes a sensual engagement with the materials – deconstructing and reconstructing shapes into various compositions and textures until a point of departure from the subject matter has been reached.
