We are retaining Mike’s page on the site to honour the memory of a lovely man who died in 2017. 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.
