On Tuesday 4th February, Castle Fine Art, Bruton Street, will be launching the ‘Ronnie Invites…’ series, which will see various artists, invited by rock legend Ronnie Wood, to display their work over the course of 2014.
Wood is the Artist-in-Residence at Castle Fine Art, Bruton Street, where his studio is also located. The gallery will be hosting an exclusive exhibition of the works by Michael Donald and John Pasche.
Photographer Michael Donald will be displaying his collection of portrait shots he took in 2010 during the filming of the Rolling Stones film ‘Stones in Exile’. The images are of Ronnie Wood, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts, whose image was included in the National Portrait Gallery in 2010 as part of the Taylor Wessing Prize.
Alongside Donald, John Pasche will be exhibiting a collection of his graphic work. Whilst still studying at the Royal College of Art, Pasche was put forward by his rector who had been asked by Mick Jagger to recommend someone to design the artwork for a forthcoming album. Pasche created the now iconic ‘Tongue and Lip’ logo in 1971 which was used on the ‘Sticky Fingers’ album notes. The logo has been used by the Rolling Stones ever since and the original sketch was sold in 2008 to the V&A museum.
Helen Roden, Castle Fine Art, Bruton Street gallery director said: “We’re really excited about this exhibition and the start of the ‘Ronnie invites…’ series. Both Donald and Pasche have created striking works that document the Rolling Stones from the pop culture movements in the 60’s and 70’s up to their recent work in film.
“It’s a real honour to have Ronnie as Artist-in-Residence at our gallery and we’re eager to see what other artists he brings in to display at the gallery”
