Dave Barden 'Off the Record' @ The Biscuit Factory, Newcastle.

Painter Dave Barden's latest exhibition - Off the Record - in the Cube Gallery at the Biscuit Factory focuses on his current investigations of the cover/label art of 78 and 45 rpm records.
Barden has had a long association with jazz and blues music. He was artist in residence at a recent Gateshead International Jazz Festival at the Sage and has exhibited widely on his chosen subject.
This current show features pop culture in equal measure to that of jazz and blues. Barden will frequently paint directly onto cardboard and collage pieces. Impressionistic, immediate responses suggest, perhaps, Sinatra at a studio mic, Bruce Adams and Alan Barnes sharing the stand and...well, go see, imagine for yourself.
Prices range from £450.00. - £1600.00.. One painting Jazz on a Summer's Day has already sold (£750.00.), so if you want one, you'd better be quick!
