Thom Gorst Exhibition in Nov-Dec 2014

Thom Gorst "Billy Blake is Fab"
Thom Gorst “Billy Blake is Fab”

Exhibition: Paintings by Thom Gorst from 14 November to 20 December 2014
Opening event: Thursday 13 November 2014 18-20.00. All Welcome

Thom Gorst is an artist working in Bath in the south-west of England and in Honfleur in Normandy.

He is originally from Merseyside, and this major show at the View Two Gallery is a homecoming.

Thom’s work is concerned with the growth of rust and decay on the sides and decks of old ships: he observes weld lines, rivets, depth markings, pipes and funnels with an expert’s eye, and overlays all this with an artist’s concern for composition, colour and texture. New work being shown for the first time in Liverpool will be immersed in the city’s maritime identity, with its warehouses, ferries and tugs.

Thom has exhibited his work widely, and over the last two years has held solo shows in London, Bristol, Bath and Falmouth.

Thom trained as an architect, and has worked as a professor of architecture. He also has a master’s degree in art theory, and recently completed a doctorate examining the aesthetics of maritime decay at the Glasgow School of Art.

Thom’s website is at thomgorst.com, where much more of his work and background can be found.

Rock Boys – The Video

Paul Madden: Rock Boys from View Two Gallery on Vimeo.

DEBUT EXHIBITION: THE AMAZING ROCK ART OF MERSEYSIDE ARTIST PAUL TERENCE MADDEN, View Two’s new Artist-in-Residence.

Rock Boys…And? The latest exhibition at Liverpool’s View Two Gallery opened on March 28 2014 at 23 Mathew Street. The show continues for an extended preview to mark Paul Terence Madden becoming View Two’s Artist-in-Residence for the coming three months.

A reception for Rock Boys …And? will take place early in May when the… surprise ….And? extras will be added.

Brought up on an Ellesmere Port council estate, residing in Chester and well travelled in between, Paul Terence Madden charged headfirst through the dizzy world of the music business. His days were spent on graphic design, his nights watching rock bands like the Sex Pistols.
Being from Merseyside means the Beatles are in there as well, explaining why his life really was a case of eight days (and nights) a week.
He played in numerous bands as lead guitarist and even managed big-name group Boys Wonder, winning them a recording contract.
Life turned out a long and winding road for Madden, from the day he left Ellesmere Port, studying at Chester Art School (where he and Deaf School bassist Steve Lindsey met and became life-long friends). Lindsey followed in the footsteps of Lennon and went to Liverpool School of Art, Madden headed to the London College of Printing.
From there a graphic art studio in Soho became his workplace, surviving on four hours sleep a night.
A decade ago Madden embarked on his passion for paintings, all in gloriously expensive Golden Acrylic paints. The result is a collection of almost 40 works, Bowie, Sid Vicious and Strummer, are all there along with McCartney, Lennon and even Kraftwerk. More are on their way some time soon.

The paintings of Madden’s rock heroes are more than pictures. Look closely at the faces on the canvas and read the stencilled lyrics, embellished with touches of semi-legible graffiti – a fusion of art and calligraphy.
“This endless exhibition is a true homage, a reflection of my life connected to the world of music. The paintings are of people I love and admire. They are a reflection of that real dreamworld which I am lucky enough to live in and enjoy,” says Madden.

ROCK BOYS…AND? is a free exhibition of never before seen paintings by Paul Terence Madden.

New Opening Hours for this exhibition: Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays noon until 5pm, private viewings by appointment.
