The Adventures Of… The First Chapter

PosterTrapezium Gallery were pleased to present THE ADVENTURES OF… THE FIRST CHAPTER, a group exhibition by The Adventures of… Collective.

The Adventures of… Collective was born in Bradford out of a shared passion for creative discord. Meeting each other opened up many enquiring and creative dialogues and although the work is quite different in its meaning and origin, the collective shares an interest in the use of ‘mixed media’. No medium is out of bounds and all members of the collective hunt, scrabble, find and manipulate a range of objects and materials.

Andrew Heathcote - Line of Beauty

PosterTrapezium Gallery were pleased to present Line of Beauty by Andrew Heathcote, an exhibition of paintings depicting the landscape of Yorkshire. His intention is to capture the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside where he lives, with its moors, hills and treelines, a process he finds both relaxing and rewarding.

Andrew’s landscapes take a unique view of a very traditional subject. His bleak moorland landscapes with tempestuous skies evoke a remote world, at the edge of reality, while his graphic images of trees and fungi highlight botanical precision. From a distance, we see nature pared back to its essential lines; if we step close, we see microscopic detail. In both we see a fine understanding of composition and colour that result in a strange sense of beauty.

Stuart Wilde - stuArt@60

PosterTrapezium Gallery were pleased to present stuArt@60, an retrospective exhibition by Stuart Wilde in his hometown of Bradford, to celebrate his 60 years in art,.

Stuart’s aim was to challenge what a gallery should look like and what is considered art and originality. He said of the exhibition; “ I want the space to be inviting and thought provoking, and to generate conversations about art and meaning.” His work is in many media and many styles and contains a whole range of ideas and themes. But he believes pinning these down too much would be contradictory to the creative process. “I believe things should be left ambiguous and for people to discover meanings in their own responses to the works on show.”
