The Lock Up

Posted by: admin In: Art of the State

The Lock Up opened last Friday and is rammed full of quality pieces from some the best artists around at the moment. I’ve got to say that for me Goldie probably stole the show. His Showgirl pieces (pictured below) are absolutely stunning in the flesh. That said the bar has been raised all over the show with many of the artists turning in fine pieces of work for a really well put together collection. The accompanying catalogue is a very neat little addition too, including full colour pictures of the main pieces on display and accompanied by write ups on all the featured artists.
