Last Stop India. Unit 11a (opposite Costa Coffee) Liberty Wharf, St Helier, Jersey, from Saturday 2nd to Tuesday 5th December 2017, 10.00am to 5.00pm daily.

In August 2017 Ian & Tom Rolls travelled to north India to immerse themselves in culture, landscape and spicy tea. This exhibition is a record of the trip with watercolour & trusty GoPro.

India has been and still is one of the most important influences on Ian’s adult life, both creatively and personally. He met his wife Ruth on one of a series of working trips to Calcutta in 1995 and together with a 4 year old Tom, welcomed in the new millennium on a beach in Mahabalipuram, south India.

Ian has had numerous exhibitions of his Indian paintings (including a one man show in Calcutta in 2002) which celebrate the colour, quirkiness and joy of this amazing country.

In this exhibition he focuses on the Mughal mausoleums of Delhi, houseboats in Kashmir, the sublime mountainous landscape of the Himalayas, the Buddhist temples of Leh, the extraordinary Rock Garden figures created by Nec Chand in Chandigarh and the colonial hill station legacy of Shimla.

Tom’s recent trip to India came at the end of an intense year of travel for him in Australia and Indonesia and his travel film journals are put together with a distinctively creative eye.

Last Stop India is the second collaborative exhibition by Rolls & son. In 2014 Last Stop Cuba celebrated that unique island culture with paintings by Ian & photographs by Tom.
The Last Stop exhibitions look set to become a very special series.
