Legends in the Game

About Legends in the Game

An opening event will run from 6pm until late on Friday 17 November. Boldly titled ‘Legends in the Game’, the two-person show presents the work of artistic friends William Sherval and James Alexander McKenzie. William is a figurative painter, and James is an ‘experimental poet’.

William’s interest is portraiture; he uses close friends, relatives and strangers as his subjects. His paintings are developed from sketches and photographs; these could be deliberately posed or snapped from the top of a bus. Found images taken from the internet, printed material, or discarded photos provide another rich source of material.

James is dedicated to the subversion and advancement of disciplines in the arts. He moves between poetry, performance art, and theatre. In his ‘poetry-plays’, McKenzie blends, and blurs the boundaries of, poetry, painting, theatre, spoken word, performance art, installation, sculpture, and stand-up comedy.

‘Legends in the Game’ is generously sponsored by Moonwake Beer Co. and Bellfield Brewery.
