We are pleased to present a new solo exhibition by Cardiff based artist S Mark Gubb. Taking Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel painting of the same name as a starting point and reference, the exhibition includes a range of new and existing sculptural works exhibited as an installation.
The exhibition builds on Gubb’s long-standing use of popular culture and history in his work, along with his interest in historical paranoias created by things such as The Cold War, and in our ability as individuals to influence the world around us, for better or for worse. As part of his research for The Last Judgement, Gubb revisited classic works from art history such as Goya’s ‘Black Paintings’, key works by Hieronymous Bosch and works by the acclaimed Welsh artist, Edgar Herbert Thomas, the latter a great-great uncle by marriage.
S Mark Gubb introduces his exhibition ‘The Last Judgement’
This exhibition, along with a new solo-exhibition by the pop artist Derek Boshier curated by S Mark Gubb and Alfredo Cramerotti, is part of MOSTYN’s continuing ‘In Conversation’ series. The ‘In Conversation’ series brings together two solo exhibitions and presents the dialogue, collaboration or similarity in exploring themes that can occur between artists.
To accompany this exhibition, and that of Derek Boshier shown ‘In Conversation’, a combined catalogue, funded by the University of Worcester, will be produced containing a new essay by Jonathan Griffin.
