Every now and then someone emails me with samples of their art or photography. Some I like, some I don’t. Guy James Whitworth falls into the category that I really do. Guy is about to have his first solo exhibition since moving to Australia from London 15 years ago. He’s had solo exhibitions back in the UK and group shows in both the UK and here.
With this series Guy is trying to show more than just an accurate representation of someone on paper, the bold neon colours that he’s using represent the dreams, ambitions and passions of the subject. Guy has also said that he’s not just interested in drawing and painting those with the body beautiful but tries to capture the beauty in everyone, young and old, fit and not so fit alike.
“Like Neon Within” is exhibiting at the Pine Street Gallery, 64 Pine St Chippendale, Sydney and runs from 2nd November to the 12th November.
