Painting the North: Northern Lights, Contemporary Six Gallery
In the tenth instalment of Painting the North, Ant Cosgrove, the man behind The Northern Art Page on Facebook, shares striking works of art, sketches and drawings from around The North of England. As the weeks progress, Ant will bring you his images from the popular social media page. This week it’s an exhibition of work by artist, Chris Cyprus documenting scenes of everyday Northern life at Manchester’s Contemporary Six Gallery.
Ant says: “For over a decade, Chris Cyprus has been documenting scenes of everyday Northern life, illuminated by both the setting sun and the distinctive warm glow of sodium street lighting. Over this period, this series of work has built real momentum, both artistically and among collectors locally and nationally with TV appearances, which is a clear indication of the extent of interest for this theme.
“This new exhibition sees the conclusion to this long running series and the last chance to see these works together before many, I’m sure, head off to new homes.”
