United Kingdom (PRUnderground) May 8th, 2014
Leading UK art gallery, Fosse Gallery, celebrates Royal Academician Mick Rooney’s 70th birthday with a highly anticipated exhibition, based in their Cotswold art gallery. Titled ‘The Artist at Seventy: Single Storey – Pictures from a Bungalow’, Rooney’s new exhibition consists mainly of gouache and oils, along with some rare etchings. Prices range from £2500 to £22,500.
Born in 1944, Mick Rooney studied at Sutton and Wimbledon Colleges of Art, the Royal College of Art and The British School in Rome.Rooney has taught at several art colleges in the UK and has been Head of Painting at the Royal Academy Schools. He was elected Royal Academician in 1991.
Rooney’s work strives to continue a narrative, poetic, humanistic tradition in painting. Mankind is central to his work; sometimes in stories from his own personal history, his travels and small events of the everyday. His paintings explore the inner mythologies, neurosis, dreams and secrets that are so much a part of today’s social landscape.
The exhibition opens with the private view on 11th May, continuing until 31st May. Please contact the gallery to attend the private view or visit Fosse Gallery’s website for more details.
