On 10th April 2012 it will be 50 years since Stuart Sutcliffe, artist and founder member of the Beatles, died at the age of 21. On that date the book In Conversation with Stuart Sutcliffe will will launched to commemorate this anniversary and re-acknowledge Stuart’s importance and influence as an artist in his own right. The book consists of artistic, critical, sociological, poetic and personal responses as part of a ‘conversation’ with Sutcliffe, each responding in very different ways to aspects of his life and work.
In Conversation with Stuart Sutcliffe has been conceived as a tribute to Sutcliffe and an exploration of his status as a British icon. By re-imagining his influence we may gain new insights into the life choices he made and the success he may have enjoyed.
It is intended to create of a way of thinking that encourages us to consider a lost talent, to take us through Sutcliffe’s short life and offer us chances to respond to his influences whilst reflecting upon the wider notion of personal potential. Sutcliffe’s legacy is a collection of paintings that have been exhibited internationally, so whilst his story has become part of Beatles’ folklore and his photographs depict a rock and roll icon in leather jacket and dark glasses, it is acknowledged that his artwork remains relevant to this day.
