My first solo show will take place at the cool Bankley Gallery in Levenshulme, Manchester (in-between the city centre & Didsbury).
The unceasing renewal of the landscape is ever present in the long history of art. ‘A Question of Landscape’ explores the complexities of interpreting landscape and offers up an alternative, slightly anarchic, approach to the subject. Inspired by my own experiences, I wish to transform the perception of simply looking at a landscape, and instead, realise how we constantly shape, disrupt and even, break it down.
Preview evening on Friday 15th May
Open Saturdays 11am to 5pm until 30th May
Last Friday’s preview was a mix of great company alongside a compelling display of ‘New Generation Landscape Art’ allowing viewers to explore the complexities of interpreting landscape and the world we live in.
My new solo show ‘A Question of Landscape’ is currently open in Manchester and offers up an alternative, totally non-conformist, unrestrained approach to the subject.
My paintings focus on getting to the real dynamics of its ever-changing surface – shapes, form, texture and colour.
I am constantly re-examining what the landscape is about and how it shapes us. Shattering the ‘idyllic’ myth of landscape isn’t an easy one, particularly as we constantly evolve and change at such a fast pace. Nothing is set in stone. Landscape takes centre stage in my new solo exhibition. But anarchy and experimentation lie at its heart.
“Rules are set aside, redefined and expanded.”
Here’s a few photos from the opening night, and more will be released over the next few weeks.
