City Life

29 April to 17 June 2017

City Life

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.

Join us for a demo & to meet painter & printmaker Chris Wood: "Line, Form & Process: Lino Cutting Demonstration" on Saturday 10 June at 2pm

Nick Tankard

Nick Tankard is an artist and Illustrator working from his studio in the world heritage village of Saltaire, West Yorkshire.

His work is produced using a cross-hatch technique with a black fine line pen. Layer upon layer of small ink lines are built up to form structure and shape. It is a time consuming process. He cross-hatches in one direction, then turns the image around and adds another layer to create shade and depth, whilst also leaving elements untouched to hint at light and space. The image may turn ten to twenty times until it is finished.

For this series on New York and Paris, Nick has attempted to create a vision of the bustling metropolis that is familiar yet mysterious.

Nick has illustrated several children's books producing full-page interior illustrations in his pen & ink cross-hatch style.
