Sometimes the word 'gallery' simply isn't enough. Yes, it's the core of a business dedicated to the best in painting, printmaking, sculpture and ceramics. But here the books turn into paintings, the paintings turn into films.
A casual visitor sitting down to lunch turns into the catalyst for a new project, chance conversations become exciting new paths into uncharted territories. The patently obvious is never quite what it seems. John Lennon had a notice above the door of his house in Ascot that said, in typical Lennon fashion, 'It is not here'. The reverse could be said of the Goldmark Gallery.
After all, on the wall outside is a sculptured plaque with a pig on it. Flying. www.goldmarkart.com

I had the pleasure of spending a few days filming with legendary artist Ralph Steadman and filmmaker and writer Ceri Levy to promote sets of 25 signed prints from the third part of the Gonzo trilogy of books, Critical Critters. Following on from Extinct Boids and Nextinction, Critical Critters is the third in this epic trilogy of books dedicated to extinct and critically endangered animals from cartoonist Ralph Steadman and film-maker Ceri Levy - the GONZOVATIONISTS. See the promo I filmed and edited for Goldmark here.

Promotional Film produced by Jonny Lewis for Goldmark. Nic Collins remains one of the very best wood-firing potters in Britain, a member of a shrinking group of makers who suffer the volatile effects of traditional wood kilns to produce pots with spectacular surfaces and textures. http://goldmarkart.com
Promotional Film I produced for Goldmark. Towards the end of the Second World War Brenda Rawnsley and her husband Derek had the idea of bringing contemporary art to young children who would otherwise not have had the opportunity to see ‘good’ work. Within a few years Brenda had set up School Prints Ltd to sell original lithographs to schools and had commissioned several of the most important living artists for her scheme. http://www.goldmarkart.com

Acrylic, Gouache and Watercolour Paintings by Harvey Daniels brought to life with incredible animations.
Harvey Daniels is, above all, an artist of joy. His intensely bright, dynamic, musical arrangements of geometric shapes and shades revel in the balance of opposites: light and dark; harmony and dissonance; chaos and calm.
Born in London in 1936, Daniels began his artistic career as a painter of people and still lifes inspired by the British artist Walter Sickert before discovering the cut-out collages of Matisse. A student of the Slade in the mid-1950s, he applied his intuitive understanding of graphic media to become the Principal Lecturer on printmaking at Brighton College of Art for nineteen years, eventually leaving to teach elsewhere throughout the UK, Norway, Greece, Australia and the US as a visiting professor.
With works held in major public and private collections across the world, Daniels’ reputation has grown exponentially in recent years. His vibrant paintings, be they in acrylic, gouache, or sonorous watercolour, juxtapose dancing forms and colours with a merry abandon that recalls the choreography of Delaunay’s Orphism, Miró’s unpredictable Abstract Surrealism, and the rhythmic arrangement of Klee and Kandinsky.
From every luminescent yellow to their midnight blues, Daniels’ paintings reaffirm the strength of optimistic art in a cynical world frequently devoid of colour and mirth. My work is primarily celebratory, he has stated: a fact itself worth celebrating.

Royal Television Society Award Winning film. The Ballymurphy Massacre
Between the 9th and 11th of August 1971 eleven people were killed by the British Army's Parachute regiment. All eleven were unarmed civilians. One of the dead was a parish priest another was a mother of eight. The Royal Military Police were assigned as sole investigators. Not one member of the British army was held to account. It is believed that had justice been administered and those held to account charged, the events of Bloody Sunday in Derry would not have happened.. These events have remained hidden from public knowledge and focus for over 40 years, until now!
A film by Sean Reynolds, Kyle Gibbon and Jonny Lewis
