I took a trip to Eastbourne to see Barry Kirks prints at Emma Mason’s gallery. It was the opening day and wonderful to see his etchings and lithographs from the 1950’s and 1960’s. Particularly like ‘Pleasance frying Tomatoes (2)’ and ‘kitchen sink’ etchings. Great to meet him, view a portfolio of his drawings and hear the stories behind his work. His drawings of children running and playing from the 50’s have so much energy and movement. Fantastic! The exhibition runs until May 12th.
