Playing on the notion of surprise, scale and dimension – ‘It’s the Little Things’ brings together a collection of artists who create a narrative through site-specific street art or installations.
Selected for working in the miniature scale, these artists use public and outdoor spaces as a backdrop to create thought provoking and often whimsical imagery. Whilst many street artists are all about the bigger and bolder, these artists’ miniature scenes and installations are small in scale but make big statements about our environment and the way we live with clever juxtapositions, often providing a visual commentary on life.
The exhibition will showcase new works by all artists who have developed work for the theme ‘It’s the Little Things’. These works include installations, sculptures and photography and will be on display until 6th April.
Please join us on Thursday 14th March for a private view from 6-9pm.
Jim McElvaney lives and works in Sheffield. From floorboards to cupboard doors and makeshift canvases, Jim’s portraits emerge from the surfaces of found materials and objects. These weathered surfaces have their own unknown history just like the people depicted. And the act of making is more than just applying paint to canvas. The work is tactile and the handmade frames are crafted. The finished pieces are almost sculptural; they become objects in their own right. Jim is fascinated with the way we look at people, and the stories we create watching strangers on a bus or in the street, ‘who are they, what do they do, what are they feeling’? It’s these moments of prying contemplation and natural emotion that Jim’s work aims to capture. Jim will be exhibiting new work in a group figurative exhibition 'Just Human' at Well Hung in April 2018 so watch this space.
