New Painting Installation by Tony Bevan at De La Warr Pavilion
Tony Bevan, Self-Portrait After Messerschmidt, 2009, 264cm x 229cm.
BEXHILL ON SEA.- Tony Bevan (born Bradford, 1951) is one of the most important painters working in Britain today.

For his new painting installation at the De La Warr Pavilion, Bevan has produced three colossal works specifically to utilize the dimensions of Gallery 2. Inspired by his recent travels to China, in particular his experience of the Giant Buddha of Leshan, and his ongoing interest in the ‘character heads’ of the 18th century German-Austrian sculptor Franz Xaver Messerschmidt, the new paintings continue Bevan’s exploration of self-portraiture in his practice.

Bevan lives and works in London . He has participated in the Venice and Sidney Biennales and his work is held in public collections such as the National Portrait Gallery, Tate, The British Museum, MOMA ( New York ), The Israel Museum ( Jerusalem ) and IVAM ( Valencia ) amongst others. He is represented by Ben Brown Fine Arts.

Modern Times - responding to chaos, a survey of drawings and film from the 20th and 21st century, will be showing concurrently in Gallery 1.
