Modest brochure for Frank Bowling - Dennis de Caires paintings, 28 February - 29 May 2012, an exhibition held at Oriel Sycharth Gallery. The brochure had a text by Estelle Thompson. From the text: “Bowling and de Caires were born in Guyana (British Guiana as was), the former in Bartica (a small town at the confluence of the Cuyuni and Mazaruni Rivers with the Essequibo River) and the latter in Georgetown (the capital that sits on the Demerara river). This simple fact has had a defining impact on their lives as artists and their long friendship has, I think, been based on their mutual understanding of the dilemma(s) of a move from The New World to The Old and the complex emotional, intellectual and cultural challenges that ensue.”

The cover of the brochure (A5 portrait sized, when folded down) featured a portrait of the two artists. A colour version of the same photograph appeared on the one side of the brochure, when it was unfolded to A3 size. Inside the brochure, one page had the Thompson text, and the other page had brief CVs of the artists. The back of the brochure featured contact details and an invitation to the exhibition’s Private View on Tuesday 28 February 5 - 7pm.
