Tim Gatenby - Solo Exhibition 2023

Bluey Bluey is excited to announce ‘Dunderheads’, our first solo exhibition by British artist Tim Gatenby.




plural noun: dunderheads

a stupid person.

"show the dunderheads how the thing should be handled"

Living and working in London UK, Gatenby works with an approach of collectively harnessing his trained techniques of classical painting in conjunction with his interest in modern comical parodies. His paintings find themselves in the middle, between lighthearted colours and sarcastic eye contact to heavy consumeristic modern day worries and light fluffy airbrushing. The paintings ask us where we position ourselves within our consumerist lifestyle whilst allowing the viewer to acknowledge the strong nostalgia and humour ever present in Gatenby’s works.
