Roger Davies Exhibition
Harrison Lord Gallery, Brighouse. Ongoing.
After two sell out exhibitions this year Roger Davies, the artist, appears to be on a roll.
His success with a brush comes alongside his popularity as a singer and songwriter. After a 15 year hiatus from painting when he concentrated fully on his his music, Roger decided to ‘take up the brush’ again this time last year: a decision he does not regret. “My exhibitions have been so well received and it’s been such a positive experience,” he says. “Many of the pictures are of local subjects that people are bound to recognise and hopefully relate to.” Continuing this theme has lead him to paint two new series of works with a high level of local appeal. The first is a collection of Christmas scenes depicting brass bands and carol singers around the tree. The second is a series of paintings showing Huddersfield Town fans going to the match, one of which can be seen with Roger in the main picture.
