Details

An exhibition exploring the exploring the life of Hungarian-born, and Yorkshire-adopted artist, György Gordon. Sixty years since the violence of the Hungarian Uprising in 1956, The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery explores the life and work of Hungarian-born painter György Gordon. Gordon settled in Wakefield after escaping as a refugee from Hungary during Autumn 1956. The exhibition will include paintings and drawings spanning the 1950s-1990s reflecting on Gordon's life and artistic journey, from his experience as a refugee to later work exploring isolation, alienation, and old age. György Gordon (b. 1924), gained his diploma in Painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest in 1953, however he soon fled his native country following the Hungarian Uprising of 1956. After a failed attempt to take refuge in America, and a short period in London, Gordon moved to Wakefield and took up post as Lecturer at the College of Art in 1964 where he taught for over 20 years. Calm and gentle in person, it was in his art that Gordon expressed the dramatic personal and political turmoil he experienced. This exhibition is open Mondays, 1 - 5pm. Tuesdays - Saturdays, 10am - 5pm. Image: György Gordon, _Self Portrait with Window I_, 1991-92, oil on canvas OPENING RECEPTION: TUESDAY, 18 OCTOBER 2016, 6-8PM. FREE, ALL WELCOME.
