Ex-Stone Roses star John Squire to launch first major solo art exhibition

'Heat, Light, Death And Industry' debuts this July

Former Stone Roses guitarist John Squire has announced his first major solo art exhibition at a public art gallery, set to take place in Oldham this summer.

Squire will present ‘Heat, Light, Death And Industry’ at the Gallery Oldham from July 7 to September 5.

Squire’s next solo exhibitions of original work are scheduled to take place at Gallery Thiele in Linz, Austria, in October 2009 and at Tokyo‘s Hipster Club in November 2009.

Works in the exhibition will be comprised of oil, wax, lead and rusting steel, and the theme is focused on the role cardboard boxes play in our society.

In March Squire appeared on BBC Newsnight to deny rumours that The Stone Roses were about to reunite.
