Alan Flood (b.1951)

Leeds Museums and Galleries

Painter and etcher, born in Lancashire, who attended Blackburn School of Art and Leeds School of Fine Art. He began his career as a freelance illustrator, but after six years resumed painting. Flood’s subjects included portraits, cityscapes, interiors and still life. Exhibitions included Blackburn and Manchester City Art Galleries, National Portrait Gallery, Leeds University Gallery and Opera North Grand Theatre, Leeds, 1996. In 1993 Flood completed a series of etchings of the playwright Samuel Beckett, A Beckett Metamorphosis, and The Leeds Centenary Print Edition, both published by Sheeran Lock Fine Art. Two years later, Flood finished a residency with Opera North; in 1996 was commissioned by the Christian charity Caring for Life to produce drypoint etchings; and in 1996–7 Opera North commissioned Flood for portrait work.
