Quasi – Urban; Industrial; Technological; Environment! – QUITE! by Chris Francis

This not an exhibition of quaint or romantic views of the built environment but rather it reflects and celebrates the grittiness of the built environment especially one with a manufacturing past.

Inspired by the artist’s upbringing in the suburbs of a major industrial city, the show represents the colours and tactile textures of many forms of structure to be found in urban development.

Hopefully the assemblages (three-dimensional collages) invoke a nostalgia and familiarity for townscapes of the past even though some are based on present-day sites.

The assemblages use recycled found objects and represent re-emerging workshops or acknowledge the potential of inner cities.
