Art Exhibition: John McSweeney: This England and Other Edens
17th August 2017 - 21st August 2017Free
John McSweeney exhibits a new collection of works based on his observations of people and places, recorded photographically and manipulated digitally to produce prints and act as the starting point for paintings. Drawing also on images in the public domain, such as Leni Riefenstahl’s 1935 propaganda film Triumph of the Will, he paints pictures of a country that has failed to read the runes carved in the rubble of 1939–1945 and others inspired by foreign lands blessed with sun-soaked shores, palm-fringed islands, deep blue skies and five-star service – Edens that are not necessarily what they seem.
12 noon–5pm (Thurs–Suns, plus August Bank Holiday Monday)
