The Smile in the Mirror
16 – 27 May 2016
1.00pm – 4.00pm by appointment only
Since retiring from film-making, Sir Alan Parker joined Heatherley’s School of Art to rekindle his first love of painting. He has spent the last year exploring strong images combining acrylic painting, pastel and silkscreen printing. Alan Parker says: “The thirty works on view show, I hope, the journey I’ve been on this last year. It’s called ‘The Smile in the Mirror’, because of one interactive piece made on a mirror — but also the exhibition contains vigorous images and ideas from the world around us, which, hopefully, might provoke a smile. All the works were completed at Heatherley’s Saturday print workshop with the estimable help and tutelage of Philip Gibbs.” Private view: 18th May.
