Richard Bartle: Nomadic Tales

August 17, 2020 – September 20, 2020
Free to attend

Millennium Gallery, 48 Arundel Gate, Sheffield, S1 2PP


When the artist Richard Bartle discovered the drawings of Siyah Kalem, or Black Pen, 15 years ago, it began an enduring fascination. He became captivated by these 14th-century images which had traversed the borders of Iran, Turkey, China and Mongolia.

The drawings, depicting demons, nomadic lifestyles and ancient cultures, inspired Bartle to spend long periods living and working in Istanbul.

In this exhibition, Bartle, like many storytellers before him, explores the power of myth to span cultural boundaries, reframing the images through the visual symbolism he observed in the contemporary city.
