In probably the last show in the Biennial programme, Mark Willcox is showing, in a solo exhibition ‘Rush Hour’, a body of semi-abstract work that recreates his experiences of rush hour with a sight-impaired condition.

imageWillcox says: “The surges of movement, flickering speed and chaos of converging and diverging masses in rush hour is a source of anxiety for many, but for me it is often overwhelming”.

This exhibition is an attempt to convey the visual vortex that specific environmental conditions can trigger, causing him temporary spatial disorientation.

His photographic style can be described as a fusion of Expressionism and Photo-Realism, with layer on layer of colour resembling the ‘scumbling’ technique in painting.
