John Doubleday - Landscapes and Echoes
10th February 2018 - 8th April 2018 - Every day
The event will be held in Beecroft Gallery, Victoria Avenue, Southend-on-Sea, SS2 6EX, and is Free Entry to attend.
John Doubleday has had one-man shows with the Hayletts Gallery in Maldon for a good many years.
His work is a 'slow burn'. Not everybody gets it at first but it is interesting. “Difficult, pedantic and engaging” is how his work has been described; this may not sound encouraging but it was the response of an owner who declined to loan a work for exhibition – because they didn't want to be parted from it as it had become an important and familiar presence in their life. He has a considerable career behind him of public works commissioned by governments and institutions.
