‘Master of Motion’ Dexter Brown holds charity exhibition in London
A free hand
Collectively titled ‘Art in Motion’, the new series of works was born from a totally open remit, which allowed Brown’s natural talent for expressing dynamism to remain the focal point.
“It’s quite something to be given such a free hand,” says Brown. “For some reason I just had this thing again about the cars. I started to think about films and TV programmes that have cars in, and that made me drift sideways to actors and actresses I’ve always admired.” As such, the artworks depict the likes of Steve McQueen, Peter Fonda, Paul Newman and Katherine Ross, alongside the machines with which they once shared a screen, big or small. Each painting from the exhibition will be for sale, with 50% of the proceeds going to Combat Stress, a charity for war veterans suffering psychological after-effects.
