Oriel Sycharth Gallery

Wrexham, United Kingdom

Oriel Sycharth Gallery was the venue for Frank Bowling - Dennis de Caires paintings, 28 February - 29 May 2012. The exhibition came with a modest brochure with 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.”
