Getting Better’ is Harry Pye’s 2nd solo show at Sartorial. More than two years in the making, this is the biggest selection of his work to date. Harry Pye: “The show is called Getting Better because getting better is what I’m interested in doing. I know some people like to think that the best art was made by tortured souls but sometimes happy people make great paintings too.
I have been lucky enough to collaborate with artists such as Hannah Armstrong, Billy Childish, Marcus Cope, Luke Gottellier, Kes Richardson, Rowland Smith, and Geraldine Swayne. I think this show contains the best paintings I’ve ever had a hand in making. It’s a positive exhibition and it’s irony free. So why not come along, forget your troubles and get happy with me.”
The Private View of ‘Getting Better’ co-incides with the launch of issue 5 of Sartorial’s in house publication, ‘The Rebel’ magazine. The new issue has been designed by Harry Pye with help from Keith Sargent of Immprint. It features a revealing interview about art and religion with Billy Childish and Geraldine Swayne, as well as photography by Mat Humphrey and Charlie Dutton, new artwork by Gretta Sarfaty Marchant, and a new story by John Moseley.
