Alan Rankle

ALAN RANKLE

Alan Rankle was born in Oldham, Lancashire, England in 1952. He studied at Rochdale School of Art and Goldsmiths College, University of London.

 

In the current series of paintings Mothland Rankle continues his preoccupation with revitalizing the tradition of landscape art within the context of our post-industrial, and arguably pre-apocalyptic, world.  In recent works Rankle seems to treat the whole history of landscape painting as a found object.  He fuses aspects of Classical and Romantic painting with Abstract Expressionistic gestures often also featuring trompe l'oeil elements as though from a 19th Century naturalist’s journal.  He knowingly references conceptual asides to provide an undercurrent of contemporary unease.

Rankle's work is increasingly highly regarded and a series of high profile solo exhibitions in Copenhagen, Berlin, Milan and London have confirmed his status as one of the most innovative painters working today. His works are featured in many significant collections.
