Waterside and Creative Industries Trafford are delighted to announce a solo exhibition by Manchester based artist, James Roper whose most recent painting, drawing and digital art works will be brought together in the newly refurbished Lauriston Gallery at Waterside.

About

Meaning ‘to change one’s mind’ Metanoia describes the state the artist intends to invoke in the viewer; a visual form of limbo where the perceptual shift between abstraction and figurative art is in constant flux.

The exhibition will feature number beautifully rendered large-scale canvases from the eponymous series, some of which will be exhibited for the first time at Waterside.

Alongside these most recent works, we will be showing a number of pieces from the past series, The Inscending Spiral, where the artist explores ideas around film narrative through his highly accomplished drawing and painting practice.

This rich overview of Roper’s recent output will give audiences an insight into the artist’s fertile imagination, allowing them to trace connections between the interdependent pieces that make up his oeuvre.

During the exhibition there will be 3 creative mindfulness workshops that will give audiences an opportunity to discover more about the artists’ process and personally delve into meditative practices that inform Roper’s artistic vision.
