The pieces I have submitted for this exhibition are from a closer look Bexley Square in Salford near the workshop where I print, plus is the home of the stately Salford Town Hall Building and famous site of the 1931 workers movement demonstration.
I was naturally drawn in by the linear forms and blocks of single colour observed on a Saturday when all the shutters were down. I was compelled to revisit the site on a weekday to witness the transformations in the shop fronts when the shutters were open again. These repetitive sequences of the linear format provided the initial inspiration for this series of prints. The historical context of this Square inspired the introduction of red in ‘Chaos at Bexley Square’.’
