Our next exhibition will be A Place Worth Living
by Father and Son
Anthony and Nathan Pendlebury
From the 9th of October until the 18th of November
Nathan studied Fine Art at Warrington Collegiate Institute and Liverpool John Moores University. He grew up in the North-West of England in Chester, Salford, Manchester, and Warrington. Nathan now lives and has a studio space in Bootle (near to Liverpool City Centre, UK), he has won acclaim for both his painting and photography being selected to show in the 2007 International Chelsea Fine Art Competition in New York, as well as being a Prizewinner for the 2007 and 2008 National Wirral Open Exhibitions, and was shortlisted for a prize in the 2007 Sefton Open. Nathan currently also has paintings on show at the Liverpool John Lewis Espresso Bar. He had this to say about his art: "My painting, drawing and photography looks toward the presence of man within an urban and suburban environment, without necessarily being direct in figurative terms."
Anthony Pendlebury studied art in the 60's at Bolton Art School, near to where he grew up in Salford/Manchester. Since then he has worked in and around the North West in various non-art related positions. He is now retired and based in Cumbria, The Lake District. Tony had this to say about his art:"I am primarily concerned with producing original paintings on canvas and paper. My paintings look toward the human condition taking influences from the likes of Pasmore, Miro, Picasso, and Corazon. I don't like to stand still with my painting and am always striving toward new things to do and experiment with in my image making. I hope that my paintings offer texture, mood, and a sense of aesthetic through graphic mark making. I try to make my ever growing portfolio diverse, and the work I produce can vary from one piece to the next."
