Ted Coney: A Retrospective: Babylon Gallery

ADeC website
March 2014

Ted Coney will turn 70 next March and over the last 40 years he has recorded the joys and sorrows of a bittersweet journey through the lives of several generations of the Coney family.

This Spring the Babylon Gallery is delighted to present a retrospective of his work divided into four predominant themes: Birth and Death; Family Traditions; Women and Secrets.

From his first painting Life Cycle (1969) to If The Boats Come In, completed in 2013, this retrospective is a celebration of family relationships in all their joyful complexity; tender, compassionate and life-affirming. "The thing about families is that they are endlessly fascinating" (Ted Coney 2013)

Artist's Talk: Sunday 13 April: 4pm £3 (tea and cake included). On The Edge, An Illustrated Lecture with props! Using slides of his work and short video clips Ted will explain his ideas. Tickets now on sale online and in person from the Gallery.

Although no paintings are for sale there is a rare opportunity to buy one of the preliminary studies on canvas at the exhibition. Previously, three of these have been sold at auction. Prints of some of the paintings are available from the UKPHOTOGALLERY. During the exhibition there is a 10% discount on all prints ordered from the website.
