Visited Charles Byrd’s exhibition opening at the Senedd Building (the National Assembly for Wales) last Wednesday.
He has a selection of paintings of the Cardiff docks on show on the 1st floor.
I spoke to Charles and Cen Williams(his assistant) about featuring some of his fantastic works at the BigLittleCity project next year.
Charles Byrd is an extremely gifted self taught painter and sculptor.
He also has produced sensational large brightly coloured kinetic assemblages.
These pieces where on show at the Old Library from 1989 – 1996 in an exhibition called ‘Museum of Magical Machines’ and i fondly remember being in awe of them.
I’m so happy and proud to announce that he’ll have some of these contraptions and paintings at the BigLittleCity project next year.
We’ll also arrange a public talk about his work during spring 2011.
