Save Event: Ardwick Still Life1

I've seen this1

People who have saved this event:


A series of work by Steve Bewsher, capturing the spirit & excitement of modern Manchester, the changing city scape and the real art lurking where it is not expected.


The paintings in Ardwick Still Life are the culmination of Steve's journey as an artsit and coalesce around an important artistis principle, namely that art can be found in the most commonplace, but at the same time the most unusual scenes. Just as Lowry broke ground by painting the unpaintable - such as his 1949 work The Cripples - so Steve finds beauty in unconventional subjects: recycling bims, discarded litter, construction sites. As a reminder to himself to pursue this vision in his art, Steve carries with him inhis wallet a quotation from the renowned French artist and sculptor, Jean Dubuffet: "Real art, is always lurking where you don't expect it, where nobody is thinking about it or mentions its name"
