Alan Belcher is a Toronto based visual artist whose conceptual work is decidedly multi-layered and object oriented. Belcher is known for a directness and a sharp simplicity when approaching difficult subject matter. A sense of humour and a reverence for a Pop sensibility, and a hands-on approach with a concentrated regard for materials remain hallmarks of his serial productions. A self-taught artist, he was co-founder and co-director of Gallery Nature Morte in New York’s East Village from 1982–88. Works by Alan Belcher are held in various public collections which include National Gallery of Canada (Ottawa), Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto), Le Consortium (Dijon), Musee des Beaux-Arts (Montréal), Chase Manhattan Bank, Credit Suisse Collection —as well as numerous prominent private collections.
Alan Belcher is represented by Downs & Ross (New York), Galerie Lange + Pult (Zürich), Parc Offsite (Montréal), greengrassi (London), and in Toronto by MKG127 at 1445 Dundas St. W.
