Random Visual Poems by Charlie Holt
Saturday 5 April 2014 to Sunday 6 July 2014
This exhibition brings together a number of related series of works by artist Charlie Holt. Charlie created collages that have their roots in both Pop Art and Surrealism, preferring to work with an attitude similar to the game of chance or the exquisite corpse.
All the works on show are either traditional cut and paste collages or digital montages influenced by both Manchester and Salford. There are altered record sleeves, random visual poems often inspired by music, reworked posters with interventions, mini hoardings based on graffiti and fly posters, and a series of collages based on the Northern Quarter and Salford inhabited by people like Eric Cantona.
Charlie has worked with students from the visual arts, media and music courses at Salford University to create specially commissioned pieces for this exhibition.
A satellite exhibition will show more of Charlie's work at the Deli Lama Cafe Bar from Monday 7 April to Sunday 27 June 2014. Please phone 0161 832 7220 for more information.
