City living can be an eye-opening experience. Any person who has lived in a city has had a crash course in life. The city never sleeps. It is expensive and noisy with busy streets and overcrowded tube rides. Yet, it is vibrant, surprising and energetic. City life is inspiring in its diversity and rich in history, architecture, arts and culture. The city is full of opportunity and a sense of endless possibility. Living in a city can be a love-hate relationship that often, one cannot imagine living without.
The exhibition presents work by Mychael Barratt, Clare Caulfield, Helen Chatterton, Janet Curley Cannon, John Duffin, Raewyn Harrison, Colin Moore, Nick Tankard, Chris Wood, and many more.

Janet Curley Cannon is a mixed-media artist inspired by architecture, the urban environment and contemporary society. Her city prints are a play on the patterns, shapes and colours of the urban built environment. The images capture the contrasts and the chaos of the towns and cities she passes through, an artistic interpretation of the sights, sounds, and smells that permeate the senses. She incorporates random elements to break up the drawn surface, adding fragments of text or textures that are a part of every city.
The drawings start with sketchbook pen drawings and original photographs which are combined digitally using photo-manipulation, digital collage, and digital drawing then printed using pigment inks onto drawing paper. Using a variety of materials such as lightfast marker pens, pencils, acrylic paint, and wax crayons, often including collaged elements, Janet creates unique works that blend the photographic with the hand drawn. Her digital prints are created using photo-manipulation, digital collage, and digital drawing printed in small limited editions using archival pigment inks onto fine art digital paper.
