Corporate Friends of Fairlynch The Brook Gallery, now based in both Exeter and Budleigh Salterton, is presenting a selection of work from celebrated artist Brendan Neiland, known for his memorable images of modern metropolitan existence. The exhibition runs from 16 October to 16 November 2015.
Professor Brendan Neiland, born in 1941 in Lichfield, Staffordshire, is an English artist best known for his paintings of reflections in modern city buildings. In 1992 he was elected into the Royal Academy.
Professor Neiland's interpretations of city life have gained him a reputation as one of Britain's foremost painters and printmakers. His use of light and pictorial structure, using a spray-gun technique developed at the Royal College of Art, has seen Neiland likened to Georges Braque and Johannes Vermeer. His work is widely exhibited in major museums and galleries worldwide including, in Britain, The Victoria and Albert Museum, The Tate Gallery London, The Collections of the British Council and the Arts Council of Great Britain.
He is represented by the Redfern Gallery and has had numerous shows internationally, including at the Galerie Belvedere in Singapore, who represent him in Singapore and the Far East.
