    This exhibition brings together a diverse selection of paintings by the artist David Bent.

    It includes geometric landscapes, intricate photographic collages, and paintings which tackle major contemporary social issues. Bent is rightly well known for his ‘art of flight’ paintings and prints, which have been described as “transforming aviation art” and led to Bent being awarded Honorary Companionship of the Royal Aeronautical Society. The exhibition will include examples of his bold and engaging aviation art. The exhibition also includes elements of his series “Movement 2000”, which explores the major social challenges facing the world at the start of the third millennium. Bent’s art combines dramatic and inventive compositions, a bold use of colour, and a passion for the subject. This exhibition is an opportunity to explore more work by this fascinating Swindon-based artist. Please note that Swindon Museum and Art Gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday, 11.00am to 4.30pm.

  • Artist and Model: Portraits, Self-Portraits and Figure Studies from the Swindon Collection

    • Date: 26th March 2019 - 20th July 2019
    • Every day
    • Location: Swindon Museum and Art Gallery Bath Road Swindon SN1 4BA
    • Time: 11:00 - 16:30
    • Cost: Free

    This exhibition explores that relationship through a series of portraits and figure studies, examining both artist and sitter.

    The relationship between artist and model is one of the most powerful dynamics in art. As well as celebrating the ability of the artist to capture their sitter, this exhibition will reconsider the importance of the sitter as muse, inspiration, antagonist and confidante. The exhibition includes paintings, drawings and prints by Frank Auerbach, John Bellany, Gwen John and RB Kitaj. Please note that Swindon Museum and Art Gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday, 11am to 4.30pm. Please check our website for more details on exhibitions and events.
