Oil paintings with Intricate details by Alan Somers


Alan Somers captures these oft-forgotten facets beautifully – the time away from the art world, and everything life had to offer in the interim, has resulted in a calmer and more mature mind.

Alan has refined how the canvas takes form; a moment in time, captured forever on canvas with intricate detail in the quintessential coarseness – the longer you look, the more evocative it becomes. Light and shadow take centre stage, playing on your senses to deliver a city different from the everyday experience; peeling back the modern façade to show what once was, and a reminder of what could be.


I think the most important thing about painting is to just have fun with it
