Tue–Sun 10–4, Mon clo except BHols t 01926 742700 t @LeamSpaArtGall f Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum John Bellany’s dramatic life was inseparable from his art. Up until his liver transplant in 1988 he lived out the role of the Expressionist painter to the full. A new exhibition ‘The Wild Days’ at O pen Eye Gallery focuses on the final stage of this highly personal saga, which nearly brought about total self- annihilation. Bellany’s ‘wild days’ paintings of the 1980s were at the time regarded as the demented outpourings of a chronic alcoholic. Now however, we can be more objective, and see that Bellany’s painting of that decade was a logical and inevitable development of all that preceded it. Whereas symbolism predominated in the earlier work, the painter, in Calvinistic iconoclastic fury, set out to destroy pictorial imagery and allow the true and authentic spirit of painting to express itself through raw colour and violent gesture.
