Allen Tortice

British Figurative/Narrative Artist - Original oil paintings
(b.1948) North Yorkshire

Allen Tortice was born to a mining family in the heart of the industrial northeast. One of eight children, he was educated at the local village school, after which he had a number of jobs including, like his father, going down the mines. Gradually he developed his own style of painting, allowing him vividly to express the atmosphere of the industrial landscape, which is so familiar to him. The stark reality of his subject matter is contrasted by its nostalgic charm and the method of its portrayal.

Not only has Allen a keen following for his paintings, but also he has developed much interest in his poetry, written on the back of his watercolors. They take us back through much of Allen's childhood experiences and of those who grew up around him.

Allen has had a number of one-man exhibitions around the country, and his work has been featured on television.
