Just A Little Bit Back From The Main Road
6th May - 30th June
Shaun’s practice lies firmly within the representational traditions of painting and printmaking, but also situates itself firmly within the contemporary world he sees around him. Whether in the stillness of parked vehicles or in the discarded trash and waiting skips lining the streets of his West Midlands home - Shaun finds a profound melancholy in the normally overlooked details of everyday urban life. Many of his nocturnal subjects appear haunted – sunk within inky shadows or bathed in the sickly hues of street lighting. When he emerges into daylight, it might be to depict the vacant ad-hoc shanty dwellings of society’s equally disregarded rough sleepers. Through it all, runs a profound sense of loss – be it loss of a safe place to call home, the prospects of a secure economic future, or the pride in industry and stable relationships that once fortified communities in Shaun’s native Black Country.
