It’s heavily atmospheric drawing on both its history and its literary roots in Dickens + Conrad and surprisingly moving + scary (I was pleased to see him write about being fearful – thought it was just me!)
Fantastic tiny details of historic and current industry just visible in the haze offsets the timelessness of the river (see final image + subsequent close up).
Very thoughtful showing of the images , surprisingly low to the floor but worked really well with the Chinese scroll painting influence he ascribes to his practice.
Also a really affecting video companion piece “The Edge of the Stream” projected onto 3 gauze screens which as a self-portrait (I think) seemed to encompass birth, struggle, drowning (poignantly), death, rebirth – hopefully that’s enough for you to be getting on with!
Absolutely captivating exhibition thoughtfully displayed, lit and with the video piece, a really well rounded well considered show (it’s amazing how many aren’t!)
