Painting the North: Ship Canal, Lock and Bridge by Colin Taylor
In the first of a new series entitled Painting the North, Ant Cosgrove, the man behind The Northern Art Page on Facebook, will be sharing striking works of art, sketches and drawings from around The North.
As the weeks progress, Ant will bring you his image of the week from the popular social media page. First up, Colin Taylor’s stunning Ship Canal, Lock and Bridge. This work is part of Colin’s current exhibition at Contemporary Six Gallery on Princess Street in Manchester.
Ant says: “Two years ago, Colin was asked by Ian Simpson and Rachel Haugh to create 12 paintings that documented a two-year construction of the commercial building No.1 Spinningfields. In one distinct body of work, Colin has book-ended the changing landscape in a series of paintings that narrate the architectural accomplishment from beginning to end. New Lines in Space shows a mixture of paintings and mixed media pieces under the genre of landscape painting and urbanism. The works are unique and authentic, and individually celebrate the inspiring and transformative landscape of Manchester city centre.”

Instagram filters were not the first tool used to distort and manipulate the female form. A new online exhibition by Newcastle’s @Discovery_Mus charts how women’s bodies have been artificially changed from the Victorian period to the 2000s. @TWArchives northernsoul.me.uk/image-gall… pic.twitter.com/0gTwKHaQBx
