Enigmatic is a much over used word, but for the work of Theo Michael no other word will do. Each painting contains as many narrative points as the film noir movies he is so passionate about. Trilby donned characters make phone calls, ignoring or unaware of the femme fatal watching closely with her shoulder suggestively exposed. A couple walks along seaside promenades, but is it their love keeping them warm or does the restless weather represent an unknown trauma unfolding? Heavily stylised characters play chess in a desert landscape or light cigarettes, delighted with the attention they are receiving from the scooter riding local girls. This work is deeply atmospheric, with small details creating wider questions about the characters and their world. Undeniably attractive and mysterious enough to keep the viewer coming back for more, this is art would provide intrigue and interest in any home or office space.
