Human Traces on the Urban Landscape
Join us at Stour Space for May #FirstThursdays, ‘Human Traces on the Urban Landscape’, 6 painters’ works on paper of the “landscape of the metropolis”.
Private View: Thursday 2nd May 2013 | 6-10pm
Opening Hours: 3rd May – 3rd June 2013 | 9am – 5pm daily
The six painters in this exhibition have been selected for their interest in the metaphorical interpretation of urban spaces and their talent for capturing a human touch within our towns and cities. The city, with its transitory population, can be a lonely place – as one person comes another person goes away – but the tracks left behind form shadows and echoes that are both haunting and inspirational.
The pictures in this show communicate a human presence: viewers will find themselves searching for evidence of human activity in derelict areas of the city such as modern hotels, landfill sites, the city’s waterways and quiet recreation areas.
