Exhibition supported by The Modernists
Large Format Prints & More
A series of illustrated patterns responding to the increasing demand on the infrastructure that underpins our cities. Subjects range from shipping containers to sub station pylons to air conditioning units; the patterns make use of scale to create images that appear logical in construction but abstract in their repetition. The exhibition consisted of large format prints and a collaboration piece with SewWhatMcr on show at the Modernist Gallery (58 Port St, Manchester), it ran from the 23rd August to the 22nd September 2019.
“This deeper undercurrent to himHallows’ work takes the reassuring mix of interlocking shapes and structures to a more sinister level, and highlights our tendency towards excess and a desire to push for more regardless of the impact. This mindlessness is emphasised by the precise repetition of the objects depicted.
At a time where industry, climate change and its effects are being seen, felt and predicted on a daily basis, himHallows’ work feels timely and it’s an interesting visual study of a growing problem.”
