Being There

CrossroadsSaturday 12 November 2016 to Sunday 30 April 2017

An immediacy of time and place is vividly captured in painting, drawing and collage in this wide ranging exhibition by Colin Binns.

The artwork reveals his fascination with the colour, form and sense of movement found in explorations of our towns and cities. Their character is powerfully conveyed through mixed media drawings, whilst urban energy and atmosphere come to life through his strong and expressive semi abstract paintings.

A theme of urban renewal emerges in much of the exhibition, particularly in the artwork responding to Manchester's regeneration since the dramatic 1996 damage to the city centre.
