John Berger writes of Broughton’s paintings that:
The body of work here, consisting of paintings made during the last three or four years … impresses me deeply because of its originality. True originality in art is never an aim but a reward. These heavily worked paintings – mostly on hardboard rather than canvas – achieve something such as I have never before seen.
Michael Broughton’s paintings, forged through a process of repetition and refinement, take as their subject his everyday surroundings: the studio in Falmouth, an adjacent and dilapidated snooker room and the furniture, objects and the bric-a-brac of everyday life. They have no overt narrative or symbolic intent but simply strive to describe a place and the experience of being there
