Item Description

Study for Cornholm by Alan Rankle. Acrylic on canvas framed. Highly collectable Alan Rankle (born 1952 in Oldham, England) is a British artist and is part of the duo Rankle & Reynolds. He studied at Rochdale School of Art and Goldsmiths' College, University London. During a highly accomplished thirty-year career he has worked primarily as a painter where he continues his preoccupation with revitalising the tradition of landscape art with the exploration of social and environmental issues of the day. His first exhibition, held at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, was a multi-media performance/installation based on Chaucer's The Pardonner's Tale (1973). Rankle takes as his main subject the development of landscape art as a concept related to changes in attitude to the environment. In some works he treats the entire history of landscape painting almost as a found object; manipulating and cross-referencing styles and techniques from diverse periods and cultures, within a post-modernist fusion of abstract, trompe l'oeil and figurative imagery. In "Landscapes for the North" Maidstone Museum 1996 he states: "Styles are emblems of the ways we can shift our attention". Examples of his paintings are in the collections of several Lancashire museums and Hastings Museum and Art Gallery.
