RedHouse Originals Gallery, Harrogate, will present I Got Rhythm, a new exhibition by artist Dudley Edwards. The collection will include painting, drawing, prints and photography, the majority of which will be going on public display for the first time.
Born in Halifax in 1944, Edwards first came to prominence in the 1960s as co-founder of ground-breaking pop collective BEV whose pop art and psychedelic murals appeared everywhere from the boutiques of Kings Road and Carnaby Street to Paul McCartney’s Magic Piano.
I Got Rhythm is Edwards’ first solo exhibition at RedHouse since 2012’s In Technicolour. The prevailing years have proved a fertile period for the artist; creating many new works, including those for the upcoming exhibition, and building a new studio in the picturesque Yorkshire Dales.
He has also contributed to My Generation; the 2018 film documenting Michael Caine’s personal journey through 1960’s London, and his work is about to feature in the new Royal College of Music Museum in London.
Edwards often likes to appropriate popular song titles in his work and in this case I Got Rhythm draws inspiration from George Gershwin and the ‘Tin Pan Alley’ era.
