Anthony Brown • ‘100 Heads Thinking As One’
A Touring Exhibition Of Mixed Media Portraits
In Celebration Of Liverpool’s Here, Now & Future.
Opens at the Post & Echo Building, Old Hall Street. January 24 – February 28 2007 before moving on to other major Merseyside venues including St Georges Hall.
A new website will also be launched www.100heads.co.uk
This exhibition will prove to be not only Anthony’s most prolific and intense work to date, but also the largest exhibition of it’s kind ever staged in the North West of England and possibly the UK & Europe. It will be staged to mark the glorious 800 years Charter of Liverpool, the city of Anthony’s birth and one of his major inspirations.
Held throughout 2007, the exhibitions will lead into the celebratory year that sees Liverpool achieve its European Capital Of Culture 2008 status.
The portraits will be a multi layered process of news print (mainly Liverpool’s own The Liverpool Daily Post and the Liverpool Echo), magazine, book, written word & pictures and photograph, all becoming medium alongside traditional oil and acrylic paints and technique which build a uniquely personal portrait of the sitter – a ‘diary’ of their life & image, produced as collage/mixed media works.
The Exhibition subjects are all chosen for their unique contribution to Liverpool life, their individual strength and spirit. Some subjects have achieved celebrity, others have achieved tremendous success in their chosen field, but all have achieved a magnitude of spirit and passion for their city.
