In 1993 Gordon Mitchell held his first solo exhibition at the Roger Billcliffe Gallery. It was an immediate success and in the years since then Gordon has confirmed his position as one of our most popular and sought-after artists.
Gordon Mitchell’s world continues to captivate us and his most recent paintings only serve to confirm the hold that his eye, hand and ear have over our own perceptions of the world around us. Mitchell is often labelled a surrealist – he thinks not – although he certainly wants his work to be considered thought provoking. His inspiration can be a group of words, a topical news story – but more usually it’s a visual pun that provides the basis for his paintings.
