A Thousand Words – an exhibition by Carl Chapple at Gower St. Gallery

Monday 29th October 09:00 - Friday 23rd November 20:00 at London - Gower Street

In 2016, writer/performer Terry Victor asked artist Carl Chapple to create a series of portraits for his 2017 Edinburgh Festival show Well Thumbed – a bawdy celebration of sexual innuendo and subtext in great literature.

Chapple produced twenty pictures for the show – from Proust to Mechan to Wilde – which were exhibited throughout its run at the Whitespace Gallery. Since then he has added to the series, widening its scope to include further literary figures, including Virginia Woolf, Giles Lytton Strachey, and others with particular Bloomsbury connections. Thirty-two paintings from the series will feature in this exhibition.

The show will also include a small selection of paintings and drawings of dancers, made during Chapple’s ongoing residency with the Welsh company Ballet Cymru.

Private view from 6.30, Friday 2nd November.
