This significant exhibition of Rob Pointon’s eclectic Manchester paintings is being held at The Midland Hotel, Manchester, in conjunction with Northern Art specialists Colourfield Gallery, Poynton.

The exhibition takes place on

Thursday 16 April 2015

from 6pm until 9pm

in the Trafford Suite (on the ground floor).

” ¬†Primarily this exhibition is an astonishingly original contribution to the tradition of en plein air painting: the works articulate some sophisticated but decisive answers to questions as old as painting itself. Secondarily, it is a serious contribution to the phenomenology of vision. These canvases show how we engage with and navigate a moving world, and they add considerale beauty to the world as they do so. Thirdly, Pointon has made a lasting contribution to the culture of a city of global cultural importance, and in his brave, forceful and eloquent art he has shown us new ways to celebrate its people. ¬†“
