Exhibition: The City, the Mountain and further North, Oct. 29 – Nov. 22 2016 @ One Off Contemporary Gallery

One Off Gallery proudly presents Timothy Brooke’s latest exhibition of oil paintings titled ‘The city, the mountain and further North’.

Opening: October 29, 2016
Venue: One Off Contemporary Gallery
Time: noon – 5 pm

The exhibition runs until: November 22, 2016

The show comprises some of Brooke’s classic subjects of cattle with dust, Mt Kenya and tribal women. He also depicts Aloes, low water in a river and Pelicans; a show stopper of a painting and something of a departure for the artist. Brooke’s famous economy of line becomes more and more prevalent.

Don’t miss Brooke’s spectacular rendition of our ‘vanishing Kenya’.

Dates: Until October 31, 2016
Venue: the National Museum of Kenya
Time: 9 am – 5 pm
Tickets: Normal Museum Rates Apply

The photographs that make-up this exhibition were shot over a period of fifty-six years, (1952 – 2008), by Sir Mohinder Dhillon, a Kenyan news camera man. The photographs allow us to travel with Mohinder back in time and eavesdrop on history, reminding us of our past and the individuals and events that helped shape our world.

“Looking back over the more than 83 years I have spent in the world; I cannot help but feel a sense of wonder. Did I really do all these things? Go to all these places? Meet all these people? How, as a simple village boy from Punjab who never even finished school, did I end up travelling the globe, dodging bullets to make a living by shooting thousands of meters of film in some of the world’s most dangerous trouble spots?” – Sir Mohinder Dhillon, October 2016.
