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.

I Think Of You And I Smile (crop)An image of my painting I Think Of You And I Smile has been included in a community project on Worthing’s 1930s Streamline Moderne pier.

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.

Signed and numbered print editions of I Think Of You And I Smile are available from Subversion Gallery, Glasgow and Art Republic, Brighton, as well as Sticks Gallery, Portsmouth (for a limited time).

Solo Show, Garbo's, Southsea (installation view)
I was recently selected for a small solo exhibition at a gallery space in Southsea.

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
