Urban Series

This work has been loosely inspired by architecturally exciting, regeneration areas of Manchester such as New Islington and Ancoats, the nightlife and street art of the Northern Quarter. Whilst the neons capture a sense of the vibrancy of club life and spheres of reflected lights glinting in Manchester’s glowing nights and rain, the spiralling marks are a nod to street art. The collaged material makes reference to urban glass, steel facades and grills.

Working intuitively, each piece is unique, although particular shapes and motifs reappear in varied positions and combinations together with collaged materials which become integral through overprinting.
