Exhibition - Newtown Library

Guy James Whitworth - Freedom (if you want it).


“My intention with this collection of paintings is to show that, without fully realising it, each day, at least once, we will all see something of quite possibly astounding beauty that we just do not appreciate” states the artist Guy James Whitworth who’s last exhibition ‘A Queer Aesthetic’ was part Sydney’s Mardi Gras arts festival. That show was mostly made up of brightly coloured, quite graphic nudes, so it’s possibly a good thing that this new exhibition, at Newtown Library, sees a slight switch in subject matter.



The bicycles are visual metaphors, I’ve called the exhibition ‘Freedom (if you want it)’ to suggest we all have types of freedom, potential and possibilities available to us, we just sometimes need to stop, take a moment and really consider them.

I’m purposely having this exhibition in a public space, before showing it at a commercial gallery next year, as I want this message to be accessible to all communities and as an artistic statement, I believe visual art still has the ability to inspire and bring people together regardless of social, sexual political, religious or gender based divisions. ”

The 2 month exhibition is part of the City Of Sydney Riders festival and will have lots of events tied in with local biking groups, so while perhaps this new exhibition isn’t quite as naked and daring as his last, it is certainly no less dramatic.


The exhibition “Freedom (if you want it) is at Newtown Library, 8 - 10 Brown St, Newtown NSW 2042 - 1st October to 26th of November 2014.
