Austin Moseley 1930 - 2013

Austin Moseley was born in Staffordshire in 1930. He qualified as a Chartered Mechanical Engineer and worked in industry for some years. He then went on to become senior lecturer at the University of Wolverhampton until his retirement. Living and working in the West Midlands, Austin Moseley painted for many years and exhibited widely including the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (of which he was elected a Member) and the Royal Institute of Painters in Oil.

Austin Moseley’s craggy, textured oil paintings - whether of  Midland canal scenes or hill sides in the Dales and Lakes - portray the people, animals and landscape around him with humorous affection. The thick, impasto paint is applied entirely with a palette knife which lightly abstracts the subjects of his pictures, whether they are judging a local vegetable show, gossiping, or walking the dog past a grimy urban panorama. The jagged, dark and angular shapes of the rocks or buildings contrast with the diffused light of the sky or water to contribute to an atmospheric evocation of people living in small communities.
 
The wonderful paintings of Austin Moseley are in collections worldwide.  He exhibited with us for almost 20 years and very sadly died in October 2013.  We will miss him.
