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.

I’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

I’m really excited to be part of this new exhibition of emerging artists presented by Bearspace at ROSL Arts in Central London. The show explores the theme of home through displacement and the making of identity through habitat, while investigating whether home is a notion or a location. Read more >>
