“Curated by Lucy Harvey, a studio holder, it’s an admirably outward-looking show: rather than focusing specifically on the Rogue artists’ plight, the exhibition explores the shifting place and purpose of production in the city more generally. Works such as Helen Wheeler’s ‘What Was Is No Longer’, a nostalgic image of factory towers disappearing into over-exposure on a tear drop-shaped piece of photosensitive glass, make the tacit argument that industry, once the mainstay of Manchester’s identity, is steadily being eliminated. The original functionality of the factory is translated into a decorative object, highlighting the irony of the ‘industrial chic’ aesthetic that prevails in mills repurposed for commercial and residential use.”
I will be taking part in PS Mirabel’s November 2015 exhibition ‘Multiply’ where I will be showing two digital composite images from the series “What we don’t know”. Each image is one from a limited edition of ten.
“Multiply” is a selling show of affordable contemporary artist editions, prints and multiples.
The preview event is on the 12th November 2015, 6-9pm
Looking forward to seeing you there!
The gallery is open every Saturday from 11am until 5pm until the 12th December 2015
I will be taking part in the Manchester School of Art, Fine Art Staff exhibition “Under the shadow of natural things” during February & March 2015. It will be held in the Benzie Gallery, within the Benzie Buidling on Higher Ormond Street, Manchester.
