J. Gordon Brown
11 May – 15 June 2013
A stunning collection of large scale abstract paintings and prints by J.Gordon Brown
Based in Wasps in Aberdeen, J. Gordon Brown paints beautiful, emotive works, taking influence from what may ordinarily go unnoticed; working with photographs of his colourful surroundings in the Granite City.
In collaboration with Iain Gildea, Brown has entered into the world of the moving image, creating a film that will be included in the Colour Abstracts exhibition.
The film, along with the full collection of paintings and a new print made in the Peacock Visual Arts workshop, will be revealed at the opening on Friday 10 May at 6pm.
An exhibition catalogue has also been published in association with Gray's School of Art, and is available to purchase for £8 from the gallery.
Exhibition runs 29 June – 27 July 2013
Peacock Visual Arts FUTUREPROOF opening – Friday 28 June 6 – 8pm
Street Level Photoworks FUTUREPROOF opening – Saturday 29 June 3 – 5pm
Peacock Visual Arts and Street Level Photoworks will once again profile a selection of new talent from BA Fine Art and Photography courses across Scotland. It will embrace aspects of the ways that younger and emerging image-makers engage with photography in analogue and digital forms. Expect both 2D, still and moving image. There will be two exhibitions, installed across two venues: the 'flat', wall-based work presented at Street Level, while Peacock Visual Arts will explore the porous nature of the still and the moving image and their convergence in installation.
