‘Pop’ at the Unity Theatre

This is an exhibition of works by Nicholas Franklin who is an art director for Mersey TV currently working on Hollyoaks. There are a few small canvases of really thick impasto paintings of things like chocolate bars and chewing gum packets which I quite like (the paintings not the products). There are several (too many?) works called Pride which are covered in those aids style ribbons only made from strips of paper cut from magazines which completely cover the different shaped canvases. Also some simple swirly paintings, not very exciting and other stuff (they’ve made use of every bit of wall space upstairs) including photographs of Kylie Minogue and Nadia (who she?). Unity link
