When the coalman came to our house to deliver coal, his face, hands and clothes would be black with coal dust. He didn't have a uniform, but wore a leather hat with a flat leather flap down the back to protect his back and shoulders as he carried the sacks. He also wore narrow straps just below his knees, possibly to prevent the coal dust getting up his legs, but I'm not really sure why. The trousers always seemed to be corduroy but that may have been chance.

We are delighted to bring to market originals from gallery favourite Malcolm Teasdale. Many of these pieces use a minimum colour palette evoking strong memories or our social and industrial past. These times were often grim, but Malcolm manages to bring a wonderful charm to the era, and the characters he portrays in his fabulous work.
Malcolm's roots are firmly planted in the North East of England, an area whose character and landscape has been defined by its industrial history. His forefathers were lead miners working the seams on bleak Alston Moor, and successive generations coal mined in Tynedale and close to Newcastle.
Much of Malcolm's work has arisen from the industrial history of his local area. His love of these locations and his genuine admiration for the scenes and characters he recreates comes across in the strong sense of community and camaraderie that defines all of his highly evocative work. It is the honesty of his approach that sets his work apart from his contemporaries however; he has an extraordinary ability to convey the reality of everyday life and the atmosphere of each scene, rather than simply to recreate the literal image.
"For me my personal identity has always been linked with a sense of social togetherness which was so much a part of my own childhood, and it is this sense of loyalty and shared experience that I aim to capture in my paintings."
