Artist Talk with Kevin Sinnott

4 March, 11:00am – 1:00pm

Join us for an exhibition tour of History Paintings at Flowers Gallery, Kingsland Road with artist Kevin Sinnott.

This exhibition brings to light formative historical events and stories located within the towns and valleys of South Wales. In his new body of work, Sinnott translates the grand themes of history painting into the narrative history of the small Welsh valley town of Pontycymmer and its surroundings, drawing attention to the distinguished characters and radical histories of the region. 

Born in Sarn, South Wales in 1947, Kevin Sinnott is a contemporary Welsh artist with a truly international reputation. He trained at Cardiff College of Art & Design, Gloucestershire College of Art & Design and at the Royal College of Art, London. Sinnott remained in London throughout the 1970s and 80s, exhibiting in London, the USA and mainland Europe, before returning to Wales in 1995, where he has established himself at the forefront of the renaissance in Welsh painting. While his work is primarily concerned with human relationships, the influence of the South Wales landscape is strongly felt in his paintings. He was elected to the Royal Cambrian Academy in 2007. His work is collected worldwide and he is represented in many important public collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; National Museums and Galleries of Wales; National Library of Wales; Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester; Ashmolean Museum, Oxford; British Museum; Arts Council of Great Britain; Royal College of Art, London; British Council; and Deutsche Bank AG, London amongst others. His large canvas Running Away with the Hairdresser has proved to be one of the National Museum and Galleries of Wales’s most popular acquisitions.

Complimentary tea and coffee will be served at the event.
