BEXHILL ON SEA, UK – Tony Bevan (born in Bradford, 1951) is
the most important painters working in Britain today. For his new
installation at the De La Warr Pavilion, Bevan has produced three
specifically to utilize the dimensions of Gallery 2. Inspired by his
travels to China, in particular his experience of the Giant Buddha of
Leshan, and his ongoing interest in the ‘character heads’ of
century German-Austrian sculptor Franz Xaver Messerschmidt, the new
continue Bevan’s exploration of self-portraiture in his practice.
