    A show that pairs two artists whose work references English country life transformed and disrupted by urban forms. Ian Mason deconstructs and reconstructs the ‘dog portrait’ of the Kennel Club breeds. Edward Bruce re-presents model wagons of heritage agriculture overlaid by urban pop art. The work is united by the theme of the country show, where thoroughbred animals and things are judged and awarded prizes, where people come to honour pedigree and craftsmanship. Yet traditional rural forms are altered by our urban society. This exhibition examines this influence and presents ‘strange’ hybrid forms of town and country.
