CONVERSATION WITH RUSKIN
8th August until 11th November
“Conversation with Ruskin”
Hideyuki Sobue’s new solo art project “Conversation with Ruskin” for celebrating the bicentenary of John Ruskin’s birth will be held at the Blue Gallery in Brantwood (Coniston) where Ruskin lived in his later years. This project is now confirmed to tour to The Ruskin, the academic reserch centre, museum & library of John Ruskin at Lancaster University (Lancaster).
Through this project, Hideyuki explores the legacy of John Ruskin, a Victorian polymath: artist, art critique who appreciated and valued Turner’s innovative painting style for the first time, Oxford Professor, social reformer, to name a few. He led the Gothic Revival, and his philosophy laid the foundation for the Pre-Raphaelites and the Arts and Crafts Movement. He will exhibit a portrait of Ruskin alongside a series of nature themed work focusing on what he stressed most for human creativity “observation of nature”.
The Exhibition “Conversation with Ruskin” is supported by Arts Council England and will be open to the public from 8th August until 11th November at the Blue Gallery in Brantwood, then at The Ruskin in Lancaster University from mid-January to mid-February 2020.
