Location: Craft Centre & Design Gallery, Leeds
A member of The Royal Society of Painter Printmakers, John has shown extensively both in London and closer to home with this being the first solo show he has had here in Leeds. To mark this occasion John has created new prints of Leeds and other exciting cities near and far. John’s work speaks of his experiences of city life and of the struggle of man against an often domineering urban environment. John makes drawings on the spot in sketchbooks and on small pieces of paper and takes these back to the studio where he develops them into powerful images that are a fusion of what he has observed and has felt; that combined with his imagination, creates paintings and prints that are his powerful personal vision of modern city life.
