People keep asking me when I’m going to show some of my paintings in my adopted hometown of Worthing. The time has come…

‘In memoriam to the concrete and steel fortress of the once-proud Bed King’
neon paintings by Dominic Bradnum
Control Gallery, 7 North St, Worthing BN11 1ER
OPENING NIGHT – FRIDAY 08 JUNE – 6PM-9PM – ALL WELCOME
selected works on show throughout June 2018

As Teville Gate is reduced to rubble, I exhibit my latest paintings capturing the final days of this municipal concrete behemoth just before the heavy machinery moved in.

The paintings depict the brutalist environs as night draws in – derelict, devoid of life – a scene you probably shouldn’t enter. And yet something catches your eye: the incandescent glow of neon poetry – messages that hint at romance and obsession. Messages that may or may not have ever been there.

Control Gallery is perfectly located for showing these works: affording a view from its window of the mechanical dinosaurs as they bite and tear away at the concrete and steel fortress of the once-proud Bed King.

Please join us for the opening night at
GREEN ROOMS – LONDON
SATURDAY 31 MARCH – 6pm-11pm – ALL WELCOME

DOMINIC BRADNUM will be showcasing a selection of new original neon paintings, alongside framed print editions at GREEN ROOMS in London’s Wood Green. Repurposed as a Berlin-style arts hotel, throughout April 2018 this former 1920s electrics showroom will buzz with Dominic’s neon emblazoned canvases and giclée prints.

Dominic’s latest works are themed around “urban romanticism”. Drawing upon the brutalist architecture and municipal functionality of multi-storey carparks, incandescent messages of romance, obsession and escapism are set among these monumental structures as vivid neon poetry.

WAC-RewindI’m excited to be showing some new work at WAC Rewind which opens in Wells, Somerset this weekend.

Back in 2013 I won First Prize at the Wells Art Contemporary – this was a significant development in my creative practice – at a time when I had no studio space, hadn’t painted for 9 months, and was considering giving up painting altogether – which led to me taking on a full-time studio space  and a subsequent sell-out debut solo show in London.

So it’s a pleasure to be invited back to take part in what they have billed as a “Greatest Hits” show alongside other prize-winners from the past 5 years.

WAC Rewind – 8-21 October 2017
The Bishop’s Palace, Wells, Somerset BA5 2RA
Open daily 10am – 6pm
