From a Burdekin Studio: Works by Cutler Footway

1 April – 2 July 2023

Gallery 1 | Free

This major survey exhibition of Burdekin-born artist, Cutler Footway—also known as the former art critic Bruce James—offers a vision of the body filtered through a variety of genres, all created from a modest studio in Ayr. In Footway’s work, flesh seeps beyond itself to find expression in landscape, still life, portraiture, figural subjects and life drawing, all of which answer the carnal call of the body.

Curated by Emily Wakeling.

Visitors are advised this exhibition contains some paintings featuring nudity and sexual references.
