Dates: 17th October – 9th November 2018
RedHouse Originals Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of works by John Middleton. ‘Paint’ will be the artist’s first comprehensive solo collection since he retreated from publicly exhibiting in the early 1980s.
Middleton’s pieces demonstrate a lifetimes experience of mark making and painting; the exhibition features work inspired by various themes which have run throughout his life; from the dark and brooding Sheffield landscapes of the artist’s childhood, to more recently exploring spirituality with the occasional foray into politics and contemporary culture.
The works are presented through the filter of an “outsider” and from a largely bohemian perspective. Middleton shunned the mundane day-to-day grind over 40 years ago, releasing himself from the shackles of society to devote his life to painting. Predominantly working in watercolour and gouache, he creates abstract dreamscapes, proclaiming often-profound statements on the conscious and the spiritual.
PRIVATE VIEW: Friday 12th October.
