BEYOND TIME AND PLACE  

The Art of Paul Raymond Gregory

Book launch at the Britsh Music Experience 1st November 2012.

BOOK LAUNCH http://www.britishmusicexperience.com/beyond-time-and-place/

A special talk and book launch to celebrate the art work and album covers of one of the UK’s premier contemporary fantasy artists on November 1st at 7 pm.

Across 176 lavishly illustrated pages in a hardback book housed inside a slipcase, Paul Raymond Gregory’s staggering achievement as an artist over the past 35 years is revealed for the first time in print. There is also a special collector’s clothbound edition, strictly limited to 500 signed copies, housed inside a slipcase, with a wallet containing a unique art print and personalised certificate of Authenticity to each purchaser. 

 Designed by artist Mark Wilkinson, a long time admirer of Paul’s (who has produced album covers for Marillion, Fish, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and The Darkness). The comprehensive text is by Alex Lewis, a specialist writer from the Tolkien Society and Greg Moffitt, a well known rock journalist and author. 

“Sometimes a band has a relationship with an artist that works really well, a bit like producers, and I think some of Paul’s best album covers have been for us. The songs we write are perfect for him.” Vocalist Biff Byford from the band Saxon 

“Your album is only complete when it’s in the right cover. Music and artwork go hand in hand together.” Guitarist Mick Box from the band Uriah Heep 

Both editions will be available in November 2012 

Published by Studio 54 Publications.

Mark Wilkinson (designer and artist who has worked for Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Marillion, The Darkness and many other bands) is currently working with Paul Gregory designing 'Beyond Time And Place - The Art of Paul Raymond Gregory' to be published in 2012. Mark's own critically acclaimed book Shadowplay - a collection of his best work during the past 40 years was published recently, see: www.the-masque.com

"I was really honoured to be asked by Paul to design his book as I am a huge fan of his work, who wouldn't be! It is absolutely staggering what he has achieved during the past 40 years. His paintings are an inspiration to us all."

Paul Raymond Gregory’s paintings from his Monumental Tolkien Series to be shown at: The Truth About Faeries From A Midsummer Night's Dream to Lord of the Rings

Dates: 10th July 2010 - 12th September 2010
Location : Tullie House Art Gallery, Carlisle, Cumbria

From the Golden Age of illustration from the 1860s to 1920s up to the present day, this exhibition explores the prevailing interest amongst story tellers, artists, film makers and illustrators in the world of fairies.

The Truth about Faeries introduces mischievous and bad fairies such as brownies, goblins and trolls; good and beautiful fairies with gossamer wings; even fake fairies. It features the Victorian and Edwardian book illustrations of Richard Doyle, Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac as well as by Pre-Raphaelite artists Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Edward Coley Burne-Jones. Fairies manifest themselves in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Tempest; in classic fairy tales Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty; in Cecily Mary Barker's Flower Fairies; as well as on page and screen in The Lord of the Rings. They appear in print, paint... and even in the round.

The story is brought up to date with works from contemporary artist Paul Gregory's Tolkien Monumental Series and works by Brian and Wendy Froud, Alan Lee, Patrick Woodroffe, Sean Jefferson and Charles Summers.

The Truth About Faeries was originated by Anne Anderson at Southampton City Art Gallery and the tour is organised by Expositionis. The exhibition and accompanying catalogue have been sponsored by FOSMAG, Peter Nahum @ the Leicester Galleries and Frederick Warne, publisher of the Flower FairiesTM books.
