Exhibition Comments:

CONTEMPORARY   PAINTINGS 

My works, classified in style as, "Neo-Classical Post- Surrealism", are based on aerographic interpretations of indigenous Australian, Greek, Roman and Christian lore, merged with dreamscape abstractions and impressions of Australia. 

Each masterwork is generated from a limited palette of the three primary colours; red ochre, yellow ochre and cobalt blue. In addition, white and very limited, to no black are also used with no pre-mixing of colour. The colours, not being pre-mixed, are applied using the classical technique of Glazing, which involves colour being laid down one upon the other to create the desired colour or its various hues.   

Due to the nature and style of the technique, each piece takes from sixty (60) to eighty (80) hours for a small work (600 x 450mm) to one thousand (1000) hours for a larger work of (1000 x 1500mm).

 Neo-Classical Post- Surrealism is now an accepted new style of contemporary art. Welcome to the magic. 

Fil Michels

I could not write this biography without first giving recognition to Jane Raffin of Orange, for granting me my first exhibitions in Orange and Dubbo at the age of 20 years old and for also directing me towards what was to become many years of studies in the Arts.

Also, to my first art teacher Barry Gazzard, my tutor in Fine Arts oils at Mitchell College of Advanced Education, Bathurst. I was fortunate to have Barry as both mentor and tutor for four years. He inspired me with a love of the discipline and perspective in art and introduced me to the philosophy of art I still adhere to today, through an appreciation of the works of Ananda K. Coomaraswamy.

Further to Lyndal Crisp of The Australian newspaper for introducing me to Elwyn Lynn a renowned artist and curator, who gave me the courage and determination to remain absolutely true to my own artistic techniques and style.

As aforementioned, during my early years (1970s and 80s) I have exhibited in many areas of Australia, from the central west of Dubbo, Orange and Mudgee regional galleries, to Western Australia, Coolgardie and Kalgoolie as well as taking a position as the artist in residence to the court of Prince Leonard at The Hutt River Province in W.A. at aged 24.

My 30s to mid 40s saw another change in lifestyle, as I became a prolific artist, regularly receiving commissions, (studies in oils) of a surrealistic nature,  with additional support studies in portraiture and developing a whole series of mechanical lithographic prints (studies in historical and rural Australiana).

From my mid forties to now, I have had been involved in several exhibitions, in the Blue Mountains Alleyway Art, Penrith Lewers Bequest Gallery and The Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre,  Campbelltown Fishers Ghost Art Prize and The Tap Gallery in Darlinghurst. I have also undertaken several commissions in the passed three years with what has become my signature style, NEO-CLASSICAL POST-SURREALISM.

All my works thematic content is drawn from my passion and knowledge of Australian history, both indigenous and colonial. This however, is often juxtaposed with European, Roman, Greek  and Christian lore featuring events of historical significance or perhaps just reflecting symbolically the resonating nuances and foibles of the human condition that have cross-cultural significance.
