WHERE WE LIVE

The Millennium Gallery, Sheffield Museums, 15 January to 5 June 2022

Five Artists. Five places. The social landscape of England explored in paintings.

Where We Live brings together paintings by Trevor Burgess, Jonathan Hooper, Mandy Payne, Narbi Price and Judith Tucker to examine overlooked and under-regarded aspects of the landscape we inhabit today.

Presenting five locations across England, the works on display interrogate the social landscape of England at a time of profound political and social change.

Each series of paintings offers the viewer multiple perspectives on the notion of home and our sense of place. Tensions in the images between legacies of the past, the reality of the present and often conflicting visions of the future are layered with poetic texts foregrounding the voices of the residents.

Where We Live has been initiated by Trevor Burgess, whose collaborative projects as an artist-curator explore the contemporary practice of painting and its social context. The exhibition launched at Alan Baxter Gallery, London in autumn 2021 and will be touring nationally to Great Yarmouth, Nottingham and Newcastle through 2022 and 2023.

ELEGY: Trevor Burgess. Cai Bellis.

Kato Wong Gallery

Kato Wong Gallery is excited to host the online exhibition by the painters Trevor Burgess and Cai Bellis.

Elegy pairs the established Burgess with Bellis, the younger upstart.

Burgess is showing his Inverse Colour series, a reaction to the controversy of Brexit and the crisis of the Covid pandemic. He inverted the colours of his street paintings to express the sense of loss, fear and anxiety he was feeling. We can all relate to the sense of profound change in his paintings.

Bellis is an interesting new prospect: a skilled painter who portrays the urban music scene. His paintings respectfully and faithfully capture the energy, passion and dedication of gatherings in clubs. His subject matter is unusual for a fine artist. This is what makes him so exciting.
