Pete Codling is an artist specializing in large charcoal drawings and sculpture. This exhibition will show a series of new drawings, sketches and limited edition prints in the ‘Christmas theme’ which will definitely be more Dickens than Disney. His work is full of narrative references to classical, mythological and religious themes with contemporary subversions, political and personal content. The large freehand drawings rely on draughtsmanship and traditional chiaroscuro techniques to create bold visions of the human story fed directly by the artists own experience. Be prepared to see some uncomfortable beauty and visual poems that will stay with you long after the exhibition.
