45RPM Christian Furr and Gered Mankowitz

Royal portrait painter Christian Furr and legendary rock and roll photographer Gered Mankowitz collaborate in a merging of minds and methods.

Gered Mankowitz has photographed The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Kate Bush and Marianne Faithfull amongst others over a forty year career. Using selected images from his archives, Gered applies colour treatments to his black and white images.

The painter Christian Furr – who was the youngest artist ever, at age 28, to be commissioned to paint a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II – then applies his unique painting style, using paint, gold leaf and diamond dust to express an image’s nuances.

The exhibition, titled 45rpm, features 45 artworks resulting from their collaborative work process.
