Michael Chance studied Popular Music in Liverpool, followed by a period in Manchester where he played as a drummer and produced drawings and screenprints for local music promoters and international bands. He has since developed a broad fine art practice as a printmaker, draughtsman and painter, featuring in the Rabley Sketch 2013 competition, numerous private collections and solo exhibitions. His work continues to use printing processes to experiment with material interractions, creating images that emerge from the imagination, twinned with a commitment to drawing and painting from observation. His work combines a poetic engagement with landscape with an intellectual interest in perspective, architecture, ecology, systems theory and exo-planetary science. He recently established the Mercer Chance Gallery in Hoxton with fellow Drawing Year alumnus Rachel Mercer.
