A Life in Colour by David Jewkes
Until Saturday 14th July
An exhibition acknowledging that life is a game of chances has opened in the Millennium Gallery at Nantwich Museum. A Life in Colour by local artist David Jewkes will run until Saturday 14 July 2018.
David comments “This exhibition represents all that I love about life and painting and a reflection of my interesting life”. He often paints carousels because he sees life as one big merry-go-round. Over the years, anti-war themes have been replaced by softer subjects such as fairgrounds, although they still acknowledge the theme that life is a game of chances.
Aged 19 and a senior aircraftman with the Royal Air Force, David was sent to the Falkland Islands to repair the damage inflicted by the 1982 conflict. Whilst there, clearing landmines, he witnessed the scars of war which were to leave him with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He promised himself that if he survived his six-month tour of duty in the south Atlantic he would go to art school.
