New exhibition for renowned Yorkshire singer songwriter Roger Davies at Harrison Lord Gallery
Renowned Yorkshire singer songwriter Roger Davies has spent his life building a successful career in music. However, he has another passion, Art. Roger opens his first art exhibition at the Harrison Lord Gallery, Brighouse on March 24th.
Roger’s work uses caricatures of himself in various Northern scenes which are often inspired by his songs and experiences as a working musician, some even including an impression of Peter Brook in the distance.
Roger celebrates aspects of his hometown (Brighouse, West Yorkshire) in much of his work. Familiar scenes depict people, shop fronts, pubs and other buildings in a style which demonstrates a flair and enthusiasm which is uniquely his own.
Roger himself is an unassuming, proud Yorkshireman. He considers his music and his artwork to be a real labour of love:
“I like to make pictures which end up looking a bit like drawings, a bit like prints and a bit like paintings all at the same time. You could say the style is quite simplistic. The artwork, like my music, is ultimately celebratory and intended to inspire, inform and entertain.”
The exhibition is a must not only for all Roger Davies’s fans but also for anybody who loves Peter Brook’s work and paintings of industrial Yorkshire.
The exhibition, which is free to enter opens on Saturday March 24th at the Harrison lord Gallery in Brighouse and runs for 4 weeks.
