Alex Michon




Michon's notebooks and sketches are displayed in a vintage suitcases and contain an anthology of works that were made on a series of drifts. "I would go to a train station and pick the most down at heel sounding seaside destinations and just go for the weekend with nothing but a small sketch book. Staying at the cheapest B&B I could find I would just walk and draw." This is very personal work which Michon has never shown before "It’s not 'big' art – its very quiet and a bit too cute for my liking but it was work done in the margins – it kept me rooted to my practice in times when I was unable to concentrate on it due to pressure of other work and time."
