Stone Roses star opens new exhibition

John Squire showcases artwork in London

Former Stone Roses guitarist John Squire has unveiled plans to showcase a selection of his artwork in London.

Squire is putting on two displays over the next couple of months featuring a new collection of paintings and mixed media works, created over the last three years.

Renowned for paintings and sculptural works which have, since the late 1980s, frequented the covers of albums and singles belonging to the Stone Roses, The Seahorses, and his solo projects, Squire’s new paintings are built up of layers of plaster, sand, glue and oil paint, which he cuts into, forming shallow pathways and trenches in the canvas, which are then marked with layers of colour.

His work will be displayed at The Smithfield Gallery from July 4-29 before further exhibits will be held at the Dazed And Confused Gallery between September 6 and October 4.
