Between and during his travels all over the world, DEEP PURPLE bassist Roger Glover has, from time to time, felt the need to take up a brush, pencil, pen or camera, purely for his own enjoyment. Apart from the realist paintings, he has a keen interest in abstraction, looking for subjects that appear to be unconscious in their design. In his photography, he takes pleasure in finding accidental images with a particular fascination for the effects of time and decay on various surfaces. This is his Found Art. There are also some samples from a future project called March of the Corridors.
The first exhibition of Roger Glover’s art, “Paintings and Pictures 1964 – 2010”, will open in Köln (Cologne), Germany, on October 22 at 19.00.
