An exhibition of paintings that reflect feelings swirling around the sense of place on these islands of Britain at the current time – a time with so many debates about restrictions on who can travel and to where, who belongs and who doesnt.

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

Where We Live at Millennium Gallery. Photo: Chris Saunders

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 through 2022 and 2023.

ELEGY: Trevor Burgess. Cai Bellis.

Kato Wong Gallery4 December 2021 to 11 February 2022

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.

December 2021

I will be giving an online Open Talk to Fine Art students at De Montford University on Wednesday 15 December, 2pm to 3pm.

The talk will include a tour of the current online exhibition showing the Inverse Colour Paintings at Kato Wong Gallery

This exhibition comes after a year of waiting, during which time much has changed. What hasnt is the pleasure of seeing paintings in the flesh. Much has been made of the ability to hold virtual exhibitions but what is lost is the sheer physical presence of painting. When the singularity of the decisions made of size, scale and texture and the complexity of colour are reduced to a virtual world all these things are lost. All the artists showing here value that unique ability of painting to occupy space, both real and virtual. We hope that this exhibition will be a reinstatement and celebration of the Power of Painting.

Birling Gap, 24 June 2016, oil on board, 100 x 122cm.


My painting, Birling Gap 16 June 2016 is Image of the Week on Cambridge University political blog

The painting was made on the day immediately after the Brexit referendum in 2016. Inverting the colours of the landscape of England's iconic white cliffs was a way I could express the intense anxieties and fears I felt about the forces unleashed by the vote. Now, immediately after an election in which all hope of preventing Brexit is lost, England is set on a course not only to cast itself adrift from Europe but as a very likely consequence of that act, to break up the national family of the UK. Yes the fears are coming to pass, the painting feels uncannily prescient.

I painted it in inverse colours - the opposite of what we see with our eyes. At its centre is a Union Jack flag, torn, also with its colours inverted. The painting links elements of my family's history with critical moments of national crisis in a place that has a strong symbolic resonance with English identity - the Seven Sisters, those iconic white cliffs. My father lived here as a child with his mother during the Battle of Britain and through the subsequent bombing, barred from going down to a beach cut off by defensive barbed wire. When the farm next door got a direct hit from a doodlebug, my granny evacuated with the children to the North. Members of the family are still in the area. The end terraced house in the painting used to belong to artist friends and an artist lived next door too. I used to go and stay until, one by one, their houses have had to be demolished, as the crumbling cliffs of England are relentlessly eaten away by the sea.

This Instead of That, an exhibition I have co-curated with artist Alexandra Baraitser at Arthouse1, London, explores how artists respond to each others work.

Ten artists have each engaged in a dialogue around the creation of new work for the exhibition. The resulting works, in pairs and including one collaborative piece, create an intense visual conversation of affinities and differences. Seen as a whole, the exhibition reveals how artists derive energy from dialogue with their peers. It offers the viewer intriguing insights into processes of artistic exchange and collaboration, which are further explored in a catalogue including the artists’ conversations.

A catalogue has been published with an introductory essay by Dr. Jane Partner, Fellow and Director of Studies at Trinity Hall, Cambridge and including conversations between the artists about their working practices. (See Catalogues page in About the Work)

INNER AND OUTER WORLDS Bermondsey Project Space from 27 June to 7 July 2018. Private view: Tuesday 26 June 6 to 9pm. Curators talk: Saturday 7 July, 12 to 2pm.

'For the only equivalent of the universe within is the universe without'. C.G. Jung

The process of painting and drawing is a subjective encounter between inner and outer worlds. Hence the paradox of painting that a decorative surface is able to act as mode of communication. Every mark on the surface faces outwards to the world and inwards to the artist's mind.Is there a point where something seen transforms into and coincides with something imagined? Where inner and outer worlds fuse?
