Ian Johnson shows off his contemporary artwork

Contemporary artwork by a former Windsor magician are now on display in a new exhibition in Maidenhead.

Ian Johnson's latest paintings went on show at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts in Altwood Road from Tuesday and can be viewed until March 24.

The former card-trickster has lived in Windsor for 30 years. He has been painting since he was a child and it is his first exhibition for five years.

He said: "This exhibition is a reworking in a very contemporary form of the German expressionist model."

The 57-year-old added it was influenced by early German and Italian renaissance, and artists including Edvard Munch, Egon Schiele and Francis Bacon.

Ian jointly hosted a show at London's acclaimed Menier Gallery in 2008 and is planning another one-man exhibition there later in 2013.

The free exhibition is open Tuesday to Friday from 2-10pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 10pm.
