'Study on Paper (VIII) for Gimme Some Wine'
Original painting in acrylic on paper, from the Gimme Some Wine series. Following Chris Gollon's 2-year exercise in artistic boundary crossing with Eleanor McEvoy, the Irish singer songwriter, she wrote a song inspired by his paintings and dedicated to him entitled 'Gimme Some Wine'. It is a song about love and separation in middle age, with lyrics "Gimme some wine/Gimme some wine/If I can't have your time/Gimme some wine". Chris Gollon responded with a series of paintings, shown at IAP Fine Art in March 2017 with Eleanor McEvoy playing LIVE at the private view evening.
London-born British artist Chris Gollon (1953 - 2017) was a very established and critically-acclaimed name in European painting, with many solo museum shows and museum acquisitions, including the British Museum.

IAP Fine Art has exclusivity on Gollon's work, and we help collectors begin or expand their collections, and we also work with museums and cathedrals with regard to exhibitions and acquisitions.
