To mark 30 years almost to the day since Brian’s Final Degree Show when he graduated in Art and Education from King Alfred’s College, the University of Winchester has kindly offered him the opportunity to show there again in May 2015 – at the John Stripe Theatre, main campus.
For the University it is a chance to show their current and future students the many exciting possibilities that can lie ahead after graduation. In 2010, after a successful 25 year career in Education, “Brian decided to take up the challenge of becoming a full-time professional artist, something he had dreamt about all those years ago while painting in the college’s Art Department at Medecroft. In a short space of time he has achieved great success, showing his work in Europe and the United States. This exhibition shows a selection of paintings from this early stage in his new career.”
For Brian, it is an opportunity to show his “appreciation for the years that I spent as a student at the College and how it shaped me into becoming the person I am now. It was a wonderful time.” In this solo exhibition, Brian is including pieces from the original exhibition of May 1985, plus a range of larger works covering the period from 2009 to date. As well as new work not yet seen in public.
