I’ve just updated the artwork section of my site – I’ve added my latest paintings as shown in my most recent exhibitions. You can view most of my neon work here >>
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 >>
The East Sussex Open 2016 at The Towner Gallery, Eastbourne opens this Friday evening alongside 2 other exhibitions – Some Are Nights Others Stars (featuring work by Michael Armitage, Ruth Claxton, Tiffany Chung, Siobhan Hapaska, Isaac Julien) and David Bomberg: A Sense of Place.
East Sussex Open 2016
23 July – 25 September
(opening night/Summer Party Friday 22 July, 6.30pm-midnight)
Towner Gallery, Devonshire Place, College Rd, Eastbourne BN21 4JJ
My painting The Devil + Idle Hands 1 (above) was selected for the ESO 2016, and I was really chuffed that they are also using it as the publicity image for the exhibition, which means it has already graced the pages of the Towner exhibition programme, as well as featuring in adverts across local media.
‘Art On The Pier‘ was unveiled a week ago, and will be in situ until May 2017.
My piece is one of 50 selected by Creative Waves, and on display – alongside 2 other projects ‘Appear On The Pier’ (featuring ‘selfies’ created by local school pupils) and ‘Post To The Coast’ (a postcard response project) – in the open-air galleries along the centre of the pier.
Dominic Bradnum – NEON
Early May – 04 July 2016
Garbo’s Gallery Space, 11-13 Albert Road, Southsea, PO5 2SE
Here are some enthusiastic words they wrote to introduce the show:
“We fell in love with Dominic’s work on seeing it. His paintings of neon signs, juxtapose the traditional painterly medium of oil paint with the vibrant newness of the electric neon sign. Dominic’s work cleverly recreates [neon’s] affects and appeal through oil paint, even managing to recreate its haunting and ethereal glow against the darkness of the black.“

Sticks Gallery are also stocking 3 of my print editions (I Think Of You And I Smile, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, The Last Bastion Of Hope) for the duration of the exhibition at their main gallery in Osborne Mall, Fareham, PO16 0PQ
I have a set of 4 new neon paintings currently showing at 45 Park Lane as part of a group exhibition alongside fellow WAC prize winner Kirsten Baskett, with works by members of the 45 Park Lane Artists group.
All works are for sale, please enquire at reception for a full price-list.
Due to unforeseen circumstances the opening of the Group show at 45 Park Lane has had to be put back a few weeks.
At least that gives my new paintings a bit more time to dry!
