Joe Ainsworth Local Artist
The Artist

Joe Ainsworth is a Manchester-based artist
who was born in 1978 and lives in Hale. He went to Knutsford
High School and now works in Hale and Manchester.

Joe studied Fine Art Painting at the University
of Brighton after doing a Foundation Course in Art and Design
at the Manchester Metropolitan University.
He maintains that for him …

“‘…when I start painting I have
a feeling of which general direction to head in’. At this
stage the painting is quite free and experimental. It starts
to take shape when clear decisions are made. Spaces within
the painting are defined by edges and colour. From this point
onwards I feel I am putting the painting together.

I use a variety of tools, techniques
and processes. Different ideas are considered and experimented
with. This continues until the strength of the painting outweighs
the desire to take it further. Life experiences are reflected
in the paintings”.
