Comrades in Art

Introduction to the exhibition

All are welcome to this vibrant exhibition of paintings from these four celebrated local artists.

Introduction to the artists

  • Kevin Haynes-“I was born in the village of Waterhead, Oldham. My work is of a naive style, crisp lines and vibrant colours, capturing the times of the northern textile industry.”
  • Robert Lees-“I was born in Royton. I have been influenced by the impressionists and I paint with a mixed media of gouache with pastel, charcoal and chalk.”
  • Gordon Clegg-“Primary school was in Stalybridge and have spent my whole life drawing. It’s the only thing I could do, as a kid.”
  • Cliff Murphy-“I was born in Oldham and create images that reflect on nostalgic times of my hometown and surrounds.”

Philip Westcott Art 2021Introduction to the artist

I was born in Salford, studied in Leeds and now live in Eccles. I have had over 20 exhibitions in city galleries across the Northwest and my work has featured in major exhibitions in the UK and USA. My paintings are in many private collections in Germany, Canada, Australia, Spain, Hong Kong, UK and USA and covers a wide spectrum of styles and themes.

Introduction to the exhibition

One of my interests is the Northwest Landscape. Here my paintings focus on the hidden view rather than large panoramas. These are painted initially in watercolour and then translated in larger oil paintings. Freedom and spontaneity are important to me and the use of a palette knife in these works allows me to capture both.

My other theme is Cityscapes and the everyday people who inhabit them. These initially were paintings before I moved on to digital drawings created on a tablet and printed on aluminium. Recently, I have been working with acrylics and have completed a series of paintings showing the effects of the pandemic on local people.
