Local Artist and Musician Les Gock's Rock and Roll Exhibition
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)
—Mosman artist and musician Les Gock is best known for his role as lead guitarist of the Australian glam rockers pop band, Hush. A few years on, Les is now devoting his time to another passion of his: painting. Les is showcasing a series of new portraits that capture some of the famous faces in Australian music he come across during his career at Mosman Art Gallery. The rock and roll star has used oil on paper in a classic black and white colour scheme to keep the 70s theme rolling. A handful of musicians including Angry Anderson, Sarah McLeod, Marcia Hines, Daryl Brathwaite and singer Mark Williams from Dragon feature in the star-studded line up of portraits. The stand-out portrait is one of Brian Mannix, lead singer from Uncanny X-Men. Les is also performing a live show with former Hush bandmates at the Mosman Club on June 12. I want to congratulate Les for his latest exhibition and thank him for bringing true talent and artistry to the local area.
