Exhibition of paintings and works on paper at The Marle Gallery, Axminster, 1 June – 29 June 2013
Ricky Romain is an Internationally respected human rights artist whose work can be found in the collections of globally important institutions including Amnesty International and the United Nations, as well as many private collections around the world.
His work is widely exhibited, recently being shown at Tooks Chambers in London; the chambers of the leading human rights barrister Michael Mansfield QC.
His work is visually powerful, created far more from his emotional response to the world around him, than any literal recording of fact.
The paintings in this solo exhibition are thought-provoking, at times controversial, and always possessed by a deep sense of introspection and peace.
In this solo exhibition at The Marle, Romain’s work comes home to Axminster where the artist lives and works.
