    Free artists talk – no need to book, just turn up.

    This is a fantastic opportunity to hear about John’s work as an artist and photographer using examples taken from the last 30 years to discuss a range of issues and approaches to making the work and consolidating his individual practice within a broader context.

    John, who is a regular visitor to Pembrokeshire, works largely within the broad context of landscape. Using photography and the moving image, much of his work integrates texts with images in ways that challenge the realist paradigm traditionally underpinning a range of documentary and realist practices.

    His work pays allegiance to the traditions of pictorial landscape whilst reflecting upon issues within contemporary culture, politics and representation.

    John will also make a short presentation on the value of arts practice and its value in the regeneration of places and communities at the Making the connections event on 19 November.

    In addition to gallery exhibitions (most recently in a major exhibition at the Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle upon Tyne) he has produced a number of public art works in a range of media and publications. Recent books include Futureland Now (ed. Liz Wells); Local with Dr Henry Kippin and He with Professor David Chandler. He has worked on numerous public commissions including Cold War Pastoral from Greenham Common, Berkshire and has exhibited at many venues including the Imperial War Museum and the Photographer’s Gallery in London; Compton Verney in Warwickshire and the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead.

    Most recently he has completed a number of public billboards both in Germany, Greece and in the North of England. His work has been widely exhibited both in the U.K. and overseas and is in many public and private collections. He was chair of the Association of Photography in Higher Education from 2008 – 2011 and was a member of the 2B Butler’s Wharf artists’ collective in London. He has contributed to numerous academic conferences in the U.K. and overseas, most recently at the Universities of Newcastle and Westminster. He is currently chair of Locus + and is Emeritus Professor in Photography at the University of Sunderland.

    Cyfle rhagorol i glywed am waith John fel arlunydd a ffotograffydd yn defnyddio enghreifftiau wedi’u cymryd o’r 30 mlynedd diwethaf i drafod ystod o faterion a dulliau o wneud y gwaith ac atgyfnerthu ei arfer unigol yn y cyd-destun ehangach.

    Gweithia John, sy’n ymwelydd cyson â Sir Benfro, yn bennaf yng nghyd-destun ehangach o dirwedd. Gan ddefnyddio ffotograffiaeth a delweddau symudol, mae llawer o’i waith yn integreiddio testunau gyda darluniau mewn moddau sy’n herio patrwm y realydd traddodiadol sy’n sail i ystod o arferion dogfennol a realydd.

    Mae ei waith yn talu teyrngarwch at draddodiadau o dirweddau darluniadol tra’n adlewyrchu ar faterion yn ymwneud â diwylliant cyfoes, gwleidyddiaeth a chynrychiolaeth.

    Yn ogystal bydd John yn gwneud cyflwyniad byr am Werth ymarfer celf a’i gwerth wrth adfywio lleoedd a chymunedau yn nigwyddiad Making the connections ar 19 Tachwedd. Yn ogystal â’r arddangosfeydd oriel (y ddiweddaraf mewn arddangosfa fawr yn Oriel Gelf Laing yn Newcastle upon Tyne) mae wedi cynhyrchu nifer o weithiau celf gyhoeddus mewn ystod o gyfryngau a chyhoeddiadau. Llyfrau diweddar yn cynnwys Futureland Now (golygydd. Liz Wells); Local gyda Dr Henry Kippin a He gyda’r Athro David Chandler. Mae wedi gweithio ar nifer o gomisiynau cyhoeddus yn cynnwys Cold War Pastoral o Greenham Common, Berkshire ac mae wedi arddangos mewn amryw o leoliadau yn cynnwys Amgueddfa Rhyfel yr Imperial a’r Photographer’s Gallery yn Llundain; Compton Verney yn Swydd Warwick a’r Ganolfan Baltig ar gyfer Celf Gyfoes yn Gateshead.

    Yn fwyaf diweddar bu iddo gwblhau nifer o fyrddau poster cyhoeddus yn yr Almaen, Gwlad Groeg a Gogledd Lloegr. Mae ei waith wedi cael ei ddangos yn eang yn y Deyrnas Unedig a thramor ac mewn nifer o gasgliadau cyhoeddus a phreifat. Bu’n gadeirydd Cymdeithas Ffotograffiaeth mewn Addysg Uwch o 2008 tan 2011 ac aelod o’r cymundod B Butler’s Wharf artists yn Llundain. Mae wedi cyfrannu at nifer o gynadleddau academaidd yn y Deyrnas Unedig a thramor, mwyaf diweddar ym Mhrifysgolion Newcastle a San Steffan. Ar hyn o bryd ef yw Cadeirydd Locws ac Athro Emeritws mewn ffotograffiaeth ym Mhrifysgol Sunderland.
