Regeneration. Jan 21- May 02. 2022 

Regeneration - A public gallery solo show held at The Bowes Museum County Durham 

This is what happened when our plans were cancelled, our futures placed in doubt, and our world stopped. Regeneration was a show about a year which changed all of our lives. A show about doubt and loss, but also beauty, hope and the life affirming power of positive change.

Burnley (oil on canvas) was duly selected for the Government Art Collection (GAC) and it hangs at Downing Street, there to be admired by the Prime Minister and his Cabinet.

On the GAC website it is described thus: “landscape 21stC, industrial, urban, bin, street, terraced house, chimney”.

If that isn’t the perfect counterpoint to a Lulu Lytle interior, then I don’t know what is.

But if that blunt inventory sounds bleak, the Kinnear painting style is anything but. With deft brushstrokes and exuberant swathes of colour, he elevates grittiness to something rich and magisterial.
