IBBAS is very sad to announce that Mike died early in 2017. We all miss a lovely man. Of the work he presented for the IBBAS exhibition, Mike wrote… “Some aspects of Becker’s work that I admire: Spontaneity, simplicity, fluidity and swiftness of execution capturing moments of movement or stillness.  Spare use of paint to express shape, form and atmosphere.  An economy of means.  Figures and animals that have a classic grace and dignity set in landscapes that avoid the picturesque.  A truthfulness and artistic integrity.

 

With the assistance of Mike’s family we are preparing a small selection of his work and a biography which is currently on display in the 2017 exhibition.

IBBAS would also like to announce and give support to the family who are creating a retrospective show of Mike’s work on 23 and 24 September. This will be held in the Stella Peskett Millenium Hall, Southwold.
