Richard Dawson art exhibition in Shipley, UK

Exhibition of painting by the guitarist and singer Richard Dawson

A series of paintings by the Newcastle based guitarist and singer Richard Dawson is on display at The Triangle in Shipley this summer. The collection features a series of collages inspired by the decor of the house which Dawson shared with Ben Jones and Sarah Sullivan of the noise improv trio Jazzfingers. According to The Harmonics Room label (which will be printing a series of postcards to go with the exhibition) the house is "probably one of the most decorated houses in Newcastle. […] Staring at the mind-bending imagery that adorns every inch of the house walls and observing the progression of Ben and Sarah's improvised collaborative pastelworks helped inspire Dawson to create his own visual work.”

The exhibition runs until 11 September at The Triangle in Shipley, Bradford. More information, including how you can order the postcard set, can be found here.

Richard Dawson appeared on the front cover of The Wire 369, published in November 2014.
