COLOUR & SEASONS
By Melvyn Altshuler and Selwyn Midgen
3 - 7 November 2015
The thoughts of the Spectator when viewing an image might be quite different from
those envisioned by the Image Maker, as Artist. The eye and the mind working
together see objects differently and the influences of composition, colour, mood and
season each have a bearing on how the Spectator as Critic will determine the
outcome of any Exhibition.
“Two mature image makers, Melvyn Altshuler, a Photographer and Selwyn Midgen, a
Painter are combining their talents to produce an exciting and vibrant show of recent
Exhibition will be held at The Framers Gallery in Windmill Street in November.
Having attended the New York Institute of Photography and subsequently set up his
own Studio in Canada specialising in Advertising and Fashion, he has been living in
London for the past 30 years.
Melvyn’s latest images emanate partly from recent visits to Iceland, The Arctic, India,
Namibia and also from his native South Africa. The images are a part of the bonding
between subject and the inner relationship. He has work in private collections in
South Africa, Israel, Canada and the UK. He works from his studio close to Hyde Park.
Having completed a Diploma in Art at Sir John Cass in the 1980’s he has gone on to
study in Florence and London before setting up his own studio at the Chocolate
Factory, Wood Green, North London. His work is in private collections in England and
Selwyn’s work is about the use of Colour and its use according to the Season in which
the work has been completed. He has been visiting the same location in South West
France for some years. Fascinated by the shapes created through the displacement
of objects in the Landscape these works are figurative, although not necessarily
representational with differing degrees of abstraction. Also included are works from
the Highgate part of Hampstead Heath.
The Framers Gallery
