Billy Childish Woodcuts and new paintings


International artist - painter, poet and musician Billy Childish is based in Chatham, Kent. In the spring of 2008 he joined the Band of Historical Hill Walkers on a field trip to the Atlas Mountains in North Africa to "make pinhole photographs, draw and paint the scenes before them - taking time to be present and amazed by the world". This exhibition shows the paintings produced in his Whitstable studio as a direct and imagined response to this experience. Also on display are the notebooks and photographs made on the trip as well as books, woodcuts and recent self portraits. In association with David Lilford Fine Art Limited
