Colour & I Are One

Bankley member James Roper is exhibiting in a group exhibition celebrating the joy of colour through painting, sculpture and film.

It was Paul Klee who exclaimed “Colour and I are one. I am a painter” following an epiphany while on a trip to Tunisia in 1914.

Each of the seven colourists represented in Saul Hay Gallery’s fourth exhibition bring to their work a deep understanding of the language and power of colour to evoke an emotional response in the viewer.

The Dialogue of the Dogs

Francesca Maffeo Gallery is delighted to present ‘The Dialogue of the Dogs’ by Richard Page, This new body of work is a documentary project that depicts the cultural, political and economic landscape of central Spain today.

‘The Dialogue of the Dogs’ takes its title from the Cervantes novel of the same name, in which we imagine two dogs given the gift of speech for one night. In Cervantes’ story, the two dogs tell of the cruelty of their masters and corruption of humanity.

“Like a modern day Don Quixote, Page sets out on a voyage across La Mancha, Spain, and much like Cervantes’ hero he manages to reveal the timeless essence of the land. Quiet and surreal, the landscapes in ‘The Dialogue of the Dogs’ are the setting for unexpected encounters, resonances of Cervantes’ main themes: power, illusion and truth.” Rodrigo Orrantia, Art Historian and Curator

This winter Castlefield Gallery brings you Miniature World, an exhibition of film, sculpture, 2D work, astronomical artefacts, miniature models, and diagrams of the finite-infinite relation.

John Moores Painting Prize 2016

9 July - 27 November 2016, Open daily 10am-5pm

Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool

Bankley member Linda Hemmersbach's painting 'January' has been selected for the John Moores Painting Prize 2016.

From George Orwell’s 'Animal Farm' to a statue of an assassinated politician, the sources of inspiration behind the paintings in this year's exhibition are varied and wide-ranging. Similarly diverse are the painting materials used by some of this year’s artists, from Plasticine on an altered book cover to acrylic on sheets of industrial aluminium foil.

A theme explored in a number of entries is the act of painting itself, with several works exploring the significance, challenges and value of this medium. Three of the exhibiting artists are undergoing or have recently completed the Turps Art School correspondence course, designed specifically for painters.

Open to all painters in the UK, works for the exhibition have been selected anonymously by an independent jury. The Prize continues to honour the principles of open submission and democratic selection.

The exhibition is part of Liverpool Biennial 2016 - a festival of newly commissioned contemporary art from around the world. It takes place from 9 July until 16 October across the city in public spaces, galleries and online.
