The Real Thing

Just wanted to draw your attention to this exhibition, Reality: Modern & Contemporary British Painting, which has opened recently at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool and is there until late November. As the title suggests, the emphasis is on figurative or naturalistic painting and features the work of major figures such as Sickert, Bacon and Lowry, as well as contemporary artists such as Paula Rego, John Keane, George Shaw (about whom I’m hoping to write soon) and Caroline Walker (about whom I’ve written before) one of whose works has been chosen for the show’s poster and publicity campaign and is reproduced below.

REALITY Exhibition Information

 

With the double whammy of late Pollock and Glen Ligon at the Tate, this new show at the Walker makes Liverpool well worth an artistic visit this summer.

Finally, to note that Caroline Walker also has work in the London Open 2015, which is currently showing at the Whitechapel Art Gallery until September, 6th.
