Take a Look at The View

Press Release: 16/01/2006

Don't miss Alan Glasspool's exhibition in the view, Winchester's visual arts space in Bridge Street. His exhibition will be running from 10 January until 14 February. Passers by can see work created and installed into the shop window.

His work is about seeing things differently and about opening one's eyes to the possible alternatives of everyday existence and one's everyday perception of other people. It also draws the viewer's attention to how our lives can change suddenly or dramatically, for better or worse. The aim of his work is to increase the viewer's awareness and perceptual understanding of the possibilities of the sub consciousness.

'My aim in painting, and indeed photography is to create works that cause reaction, attract and capture the viewer and involve them directly with the work. It is my belief that art should be more accessible to the everyday viewer and directly relate to everyday people and their lifestyles and experiences,' said Alan Glasspool.

Alan studied a HND in graphic design at Bournemouth University and then moved on to study a BA in Fine Art (painting) at Winchester School of Art in September 2003 which he will graduate from this July (2006).
