Graham Crowley one of the most distinguished living painters in the UK shall be in conversation with Wilderness Artists: Rosalind Davis, Enver Gürsev and Neil Kelly
Wilderness is an exhibition by three of London's most promising emerging artists exploring the idea of wilderness through painting, drawing and installation.
Davis, Gursev & Kelly’s works each interpret notions of seemingly abandoned spaces. The results depict urban and dystopian scenes, as if in the wake of apocalypse.
Graham will discuss and explore with the artists the concepts in their works, their notions of Wilderness as well as their own varied and fascinating careers so far in the Wilderness of the Art World!
Wilderness is a show not to be missed, with new works on display from each of the artists.
About Graham Crowley
Graham Crowley is one of the most distinguished living painters in the UK today. Born in 1950, Graham Crowley studied at St. Martin’s School of Art London 1968-72 and Royal College of Art London 1972-75, and has held significant teaching posts including Professor of Painting at the RCA (1998-2006)
In April 2008 Graham Crowley had a letter published in Art Monthly ‘Can’t get No Satisfaction’ in which he expressed his concerns about the state of art education in London. His letter precipitated a national debate both in Art Monthly and the wider art world.
His paintings span a vast variance in style from the approprationist art of the 70s to his brilliantly luminous landscapes of the present day, tracking a fundamental narrative with political, cultural and personal histories within them. Crowley was a judge on the 25 John Moores panel in 2008. As an applicant he has exhibited eight times, winning prizes in 1987 and 2006.
