Print Artist: Allen Tortice
Allen Tortice was born in Yorkshire in 1948. He was educated at Bruntcliffe High School in Leeds and Wakefield College where he studied mining engineering. He is from a mining family and like his forefathers his first job was down the pit.
After the mines Allen Tortice undertook a number of non art related jobs until 1987 when he started to paint seriously. Since then he has evolved his own distinctive style of painting recreating and capturing the atmosphere of the industrial landscape which he remembers from his childhood days. Tortice's paintings and art prints successfully combine a nostalgic charm whilst at the same time recording the grim reality of scenes where smoking chimney stacks dominant the sky line.
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 watercolours. 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 his one-man exhibitions around the country, and his work has been featured on television.
Allen Tortice has always been drawn to Northern industrial landscapes. He is driven to capture them in paintings and limited edition prints and strongly believes the industrial heritage should not be forgotten. He says: “I believe part of the city can produce powerful images, in the hands of a passionate artist”. Not only has Allen Tortice a keen following for his paintings and prints, but also he has developed much interest in his poetry which is written on the back of his watercolors.
