Siblings Cannot Agree mixed media portrait exhibition

Working together for only the second time, Cally Trench and Nick Trench have compiled a wide range of portraits and self-portraits of themselves spanning five decades – full faces, isolated features, hands and feet – dating back to their teenage years in the London suburbs and tracing through later adult stages to the present day.
The works – including pencil, ink, oil and film pieces – are individual and idiosyncratic in their vision as well as differing in style and format. The two pencil portraits from 1970, which triggered the whole idea, will sit side-by-side to open the display and hint at the two highly disparate artistic expressions that follow.
Curating the exhibition, due to launch on 16 September (Private View 3-6pm) at the up-and-coming central England Heseltine Gallery, just off the M40 near Banbury, Tom Christy explains: “Cally and Nick have developed a very honest concept: viewers may react to the images they have created by thinking about how they see themselves. It's a display which will resonate with many parents and young people, for we're all interested in how the world sees us.
