Alasdair Banks Gallery - Head for the City

HEAD FOR

THE CITY

The work that comprises 'Head for the City' has its origin in an urban sculpture proposal exploring the idea of 'the traffic murder of the city'.

Subsequently it has been expanded into a more general expression of our interactions with the buildings that surround us.

"In these drawings paintings and prints the artist focuses on the buildings and highways that have wrapped themselves round the modern consciousness and investigates the dilemma of the urban car driver who has become both aggressor and victim in the city."

“What struck me was the three-dimensional “in your face” quality... they appear to lift from the canvas in a way that suggests sculpture.”

 

“There is an unassailable directness and dynamic physicality to this work which it is difficult to ignore.”
