CONTEMPORARY PAINTING: THE BEST OF THE NEW COLLECTIBLES
Contemporary Painting is in fine fettle here in the North, and we have the best of the New Collectibles at According to McGee. Cityscapes, Seascapes, Landscapes, Abstracts: they’re all here courtesy of internationally well regarded names such as Richard Barnes, Amrik Varkalis, John Creighton, Freya Horsley, Patrick Smith.
The rumours of Painting’s demise have been greatly exaggerated: come see us.
Harry Malkin worked as a sculptor and painter since he was made redundant from the coal industry in 1985 after spending twenty years at Fryston Colliery, most of which was on the coal face.
Since that time he has had a number of solo exhibitions including one at the Royal Festival Hall. The most recently being a memorial to five soldiers killed in the Afghan war and one to the miners of Allerton Bywater Colliery. The later was unveiled by the leader of Leeds City council and attended by over two thousand people following a marching brass band. This was televised by both Yorkshire TV and the BBC North.
