Spokes | Paintings by Brian Cheeswright

Whitechapel Ideas Store
321 Whitechapel Road
London
E1 1BU

1st April to 30th April, 2019 


Running throughout April at Whitechapel Ideas Store is the exhibition Spokes: Paintings by Brian Cheeswright.

Brian Cheeswright Grew up in Harrow and graduated from Brighton school of art back in 2004. He has been living in Edinburgh the last ten years. In 2013 he won the 4th Marmite Prize for Painting.

Having previously shown at the Ideas Centre (along with Ed Hill) in 2014, this solo show presents a selection of his most recent paintings on canvas and paper. Although certain cycles of repetition are apparent in his practise, Cheeswright is suspicious of falling into a purposeful ‘style’ the painter restlessly switches saddles regularly between the sensitive introspective and the fleeting absurd;  between abstraction and figuration. The title Spokes centres on the simple idea of the spokes of a wheel coming of a central hub (the artist himself) and all these different arrows being part of the same momentum

Opening Times:

Mon-Thur 9am – 9pm
Friday  9am – 6pm
