'Lets Groove Tonight'

An exhibition of paintings, drawings and photography by artist Sue Tilley. Preview: Friday 4th November 6pm - 8.30 pm

Sue Tilley was a best friend of Leigh Bowery who became a huge influence on her life. After he died in 1993 she wrote his biography which has become a cult classic.
Leigh Bowery introduced her to Lucian Freud who painted her four times. One painting, ‘Benefit Supervisor Sleeping’ went for over £17,000,000 in 2008 which at the time was a world record for a painting by a living artist sold at auction.

'I am including portraits of my friends Leigh and Trojan and other people from the club scene past and present…also things to do with club culture such as make up, booze, fags and poppers.
I mainly work in Acrylic but have been recently dabbling in oils. There will also be a few drawings.’ Sue Tilley

Exhibition continues for 3 weekends
5th and 6th, 12th and 13th, 19th and 20th November
