Exploring Transience - Locating Meaning within the Urban Crowd.

The exhibition will open this Tuesday (15 nov)

This selection of oil paintings focuses on pedestrian movement within the urban environment, highlighting micro narratives within the flux of everyday passage. While speaking of the anonymity and strangeness of the city, they reflect issues of intimacy and separation, the borders of the individual and instigate a perspective of the self in relation to the multitude.

OPENING: Tuesday 15 November. 530 – 730pm
Runs from 15 November to 27 November
