05 Apr ‘Surprise’ at Brisbane Powerhouse
“The Surprise Collection” by Lincoln Townley is coming to the Brisbane Powerhouse, August 17th until October 1st, 2017.
REDSEA Gallery and Brisbane Powerhouse are uniting this August to launch the much anticipated Surprise Collection by Global Art sensation Lincoln Townley, dubbed the ‘next Andy Warhol’ by Sir Michael Caine.
Lincoln Townley will be exhibiting his entire Surprise Collection and portraits of Sir Michael Caine form his Icons Collection between August and October 2017 at the Brisbane Powerhouse, one of Australia’s leading arts and cultural venues. The exhibition will also include a biographical film, which tells the remarkable story of Townley’s journey to becoming one of the world’s leading contemporary artists.
This collection of oil paintings depicts the turbulence of a descent into the darkest depths of the unconscious mind where form and structure dissipate to leave the raw, intense energy of a struggle for survival. A powerful visual depiction of the darkness man must conquer to gain ultimate iconic stature. Lincoln Townley is a leading British artist and current artist in residence at the BAFTA’s in L.A. Townley’s work has been exhibited at The National Gallery and Saatchi Gallery in London. Some of his clients are made up of the world’s greatest stars; Sir Michael Caine, Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Kate Moss and David Bowie to name a few. These have all become part of his world-famous ICON collection, which will feature in this exhibition.
