. ELEGY: Trevor Burgess. Cai Bellis.

Kato Wong Gallery, 3 December 2021 to 14 January 2022

Kato Wong Gallery is excited to announce our next 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. The exhibition opens on Friday 3rd December with an online opening event. Tickets are free and you are warmly welcomed. Book here


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

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

Trevor Burgess, Jonathan Hooper, Mandy Payne, Narbi Price and Judith Tucker.

Where We Live is an artist-curated exhibition of paintings that explore overlooked and under-regarded aspects of England today. Five artists give intense scrutiny to five locations across England in paintings that offer a concentrated and often critical perspective on the country's social landscape at a time of profound political and social change.

* the all-but-erased history of post-industrial mining villages in Northumberland

* a large-scale housing estate in Sheffield in transition to luxury flats

* bringing a modernist colour perspective to bear on depicting residential architecture in Leeds

* contested coastal chalet plotlands in North Lincolnshire, whose history goes back to the 1930s

* recovering everyday urban experience of the street and the notion of home from the commodification of the London property market

See the Press Release here

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 through 2022 and 2023. In partnership with Contemporary British Painting
