Alan Dedman artworks for sale: I was set to be a gamekeeper on the Snettisham estates in Norfolk. Instead it was determined I should study Art. I went a long way in art education, studying, living and working in Central London.

After sixteen years, I reverted to a rural life in the West Country – where amogst other things, I’ve worked as a lumberjack. City living never absorbed my physical energies.

In reaction to working with hairy loggers I returned to painting and making. I believe a Classical training affords me ‘pricks to kick against’; which is what’s missing from Post-modernism.

Olwyn Bowey RA once said to me: ‘Never paint to the market, only paint that which you like and are interested in’. Carel Weight’s former girlfriend was among staff at St. Martin’s and the Royal Academy Schools, Her advice was fair; I concentrate on people, characters, energy, action and colour.

If you study art, you should be able to paint and draw competently. I have achieved this. The detailed portrait studies I make are from life. They involve very little drawing, I paint directly onto the support.

These days I no longer seek ‘to please the Gods’ (in London or elsewhere) with ‘Good Boy’ paintings. I believe you should make art to suit yourself, my oeuvre is eclectic and varied. As are those of Gerhard Richter or Pablo Picasso.

Below are examples of art-works for sale. Click on any image to see an enlarged version. ‘Tiger Life’ has a tiny sticker of a tiger on it, (based on graphics from a South American greengrocer). ‘Gamblin’ bar room nudes‘ is a triptych on A4 size boards. ‘Where’s Willy?‘ is a section of a large painting in charcoal and acrylic on canvas.

With AI the human touch is more valid than ever. My art consists of colour, humour, absudity ….. isn’t ‘Woke. It is colourful and sensual. Not painted to the market. Alan Dedman artworks are in private collections alongside the likes of Elizabeth Frink, John Piper et al; they tend to be for the domestic market.
