Derek Boshier: It's Only When the Tide Goes Out...

Derek Boshier: It's Only When the Tide Goes Out...


We are pleased to present works by English pop artist Derek Boshier who first came to prominence as part of the British Pop Art movement in the early 1960s. Boshier is also known for his work with cultural icons such as The Clash and David Bowie.

The exhibition includes a range of drawings, paintings, prints and videos. along with lesser known photographic and sculptural works and ephemera from the artist's personal collection. Through this broad collection of works and artefacts the exhibition reveals how Boshier's creativity steps beyond the studio or gallery space. Containing works from the last four decades of the artist's career, presented here is a never before seen portrait of an artist whose own work he has described as "art that's political, not political art".

The exhibition also includes works and archive photographs made in the 1970s when Boshier lived in the Welsh village of Llangadfan.

The two exhibitions form part of MOSTYN's continuing 'In Conversation' series which brings together two solo exhibitions and presents the dialogue, collaboration or similarity in exploring themes that can occur between artists. The exhibition is curated by the artist S Mark Gubb, whose exhibition The Last Judgement is showing concurrently, and by Alfredo Cramerotti, MOSTYN Director.
