Ben Folds photographs and tour posters at Richard Goodall Galler 2012


We are really excited that are new exhibition is a world first with the Photography of Ben Folds.

Ben Folds is the renowned pianist, producer and musician behind Ben Folds Five and a stream of solo records. Throughout his career Ben Folds has always taken photographs, travelling on tour with a camera, and until now, no one has seen them.

Ben Folds Five have just released their first new album in 13 years The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind and are to about tour the UK. We are very proud to present this exclusive show of Ben Folds photographs and the art of the UK reunion tour.



The full band (Ben, Robert and Darren) will be at the gallery for the preview on November 28th, signing and personalising prints and photographs from the exhibition.

Ben’s photographs are a stark contrast yet inexorably tied to the persona of life as a professional musician, on tour and in the studio. These can be considered quiet photographs, yet within each shot there is so much within the image and quite elusive for the most part. An inside look at life experienced within moments of solitude, humour in the studio, and then loudness as we see the stage and the crowds. The pictures show Ben, and his friends, including William Shatner, Regina Spektor and Hans Zimmer, in their unguarded moments.

Ben’s work follows in the traditions of other great musical photographers Graham Nash and Anton Corbijn, delicately capturing the juxtaposition of the fierce and subtle, and when they rock they rock hard.

Richard Goodall looking at them said “There is an image that to me personifies the work, a tour lanyard hanging on the mirror of the tour bus as it hurtles down the empty highway. From where and to where is left up to the viewer. These images give us a glimpse into a life most of us can only imagine, perfectly capturing the moments as if we were seeing them for ourselves. We are delighted to work with Ben to bring these images to the public, and a previously unseen photographic talent into the spotlight. There is something here for everyone. For fans of Ben Folds Five from their first outing in ‘96, new fans of the band and his solo work, and also for photography and art lovers alike. I have one on my wall and I love it”

All the work is available to buy at an affordable price, as 16×20 inches and 20 x 30 inches archival pigment prints in signed and numbered editions of only 20.

To coincide with the Ben Folds Five UK tour and the exhibition, Richard Goodall Gallery has also commissioned a very special limited edition series of silk screen posters for each date on the tour. Unveiled and available to buy at the gallery these beautiful prints by artists including Brendan Dawes, Jason Munn, Drew Millward, Luke Drozd, Brandon Schaefer, Alex Frazer, Sean Mort & John Powell Jones. The prints perfectly compliment the photography and draw us further into the world of Ben Folds.

Cinema Redux Brendan Dawes September 20th

Richard Goodall Gallery presents Cinema Redux by British artist Brendan Dawes. Opening at Richard Goodall Gallery High Street September 20th – October 13th and then showing at Battersea and Hampstead affortable art fairs.

Brendan started the continuing Cinema Redux series in 2004. The Museum of Modern Art in New York has exhibited several of the pieces on two occasions, and has acquired a selection of the work for their permanent collection.

Brendan has made 20 of these exquisite interpretations from the series , diasec mounted on aluminium. Each title is 40 inches wide, and the height ranging from 51 to 77 inches depending on the running time of the featured movie.

Living in today’s consumer led society we are more than anything defined by the things around us. As human beings it is important for us to represent our likes and conversely our dislikes to the outside world by creating physical objects that trigger memories, debate and chance conversation. But as more of our world becomes digitised it increasingly becomes harder to be surrounded by such artefacts. Music, photographs and now our much loved movies are buried away on our super cheap hard-drives or in the cloud with their seemingly infinite capacity for storage, hidden in a series of ones and zeroes that no visitor to one’s home or office will ever know is there.

All of us can relate to particular films that have made a significant impression on us at certain points in our lives. The images in the Cinema Redux series make a physical representation of an entire movie in the hope that you can show the world – or the visitors to your home at least – your passion for a certain film. Not just a certain scene, not just one single frame but the entire film, represented in a new visual form created by Brendan Dawes, a kind of cinematic DNA.

Grammy Award Artist: America’s Best Kept Eccentric

White Stripes Japan Tour 2005

Rob Jones, White Stripes Japan Tour 2005

Grammy award winning artist Rob Jones will be making a fleeting visit to the Richard Goodall Gallery for one day only (10th December) as part of his exclusive exhibition Redsmith. The creator behind the band art of the White Stripes is what we would describe as one of America’s best kept eccentrics.

Rob’s artist biography describes a treacherous, full throttled mirage of life that started in 1925.  Along the way he was discharged from the navy, married a red-headed stripper, gained a taste for hard drugs and became an underground comedy legend. It briefly mentions his artistic career.

Despite the biography describing how Rob’s life came to an end in 1966 in his Hollywood home, he miraculously lives to tell the tale today and presents you with an opportunity to meet the man behind the iconic art.

Don’t miss the opening of the Redsmith on Saturday 10th December across both Richard Goodall Galleries. 

Opening 10th December 

Exhibition runs 10th December 2010 – 21st January 2012

The Richard Goodall Galleries are both found in the Northern Quarter on

High Street, Manchester & on Thomas Street, Manchester (round the corner form each other)

Redsmith Exhibition: Grammy award winning artist Rob Jones gallery takeover 10th December – 28th January.

Rob Jones White Stripes poster

Picture the scene if you will; it’s February 2011, a star studded audience have turned out for the 53rd prestigious Grammy Awards. The glamorous audience eagerly await the announcement of the winning Art Director of Best Record Packaging. Amongst the dazzlingly dressed music legends, up-pops a tonsured man donning a Barbie-pink leather suit, complete with clashing white cowboy boots. He eagerly runs towards the stage with rock symbol hands in the air. After running up the stage stairs in a chat-show-host fashion he thanks the White Stripes, his mum, dad, school and God. Watch it below If you don’t believe me.

Artist Rob Jones is not afraid of making an impression wherever he goes but not more so than his iconic artwork for bands such as the White Stripes, Raconteurs and the Killers. Richard Goodall Gallery have had the thrill of working with Jones on his eagerly awaited exhibition premiering exclusive works. Set across both Richard Goodall venues (Thomas Street and High Street Gallery), viewers will be able to peruse Jones’ craftsmanship and infamous poster imagery.
This fleeting opportunity to view audacious artist Jones is not to be missed, starting on the 10th December at 6pm – 9pm across both galleries. Watch in disbelief as Jones accepts his Grammy.

Rob Jones is set to grace our gallery once again as we prepare for the up-and-coming show that will run alongside our already up-and-running Winter Exhibition.

Rob Jones White Stripes poster

Grammy award winning artist Rob Jones has produced stunning works that have been visual focal point of Jack White’s various bands such as The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and  Dead Weather. These highly sought after silkscreen prints are a collection of earlier works dating back to the White Stripes’ first major label debut in 2003 through to exclusive never before seen prints. 

Curator Richard Goodall described how, “Rob’s work is immense, across the detail and the design, and the number of works we have available in this exhibition. To be able to produce such an amount of work with the same high standard and using the complimentary palate and ties to the music is nothing short of astounding.” Richard added, “We are thrilled to finally be able to put on this show so that everyone can see and own these pieces.”

Rob commented on the his return, “It’s a great pleasure to be back in the UK at the Goodall Gallery, and to see all the work together is a pure delight.”

We hope you will be able to join us for the opening on the 10th December,  alternatively the show will run from 11th December through to the 21st January across both galleries.

The Richard Goodall Galleries are both found in the Northern Quarter on

High Street, Manchester & on Thomas Street, Manchester
