Bryan Eccleshall | TRIO | 7/10/16 – 22/10/16

 

Resident Bryan Eccleshall‘s TRIO, which is currently on display on our Atrium Wall, comprises three one metre square pencil drawings, each made up of sixteen 25cm x 25cm panels:

 

  • Top: After Caravaggio’s ‘The Incredulity of St Thomas’
  • Centre: After Joseph Beuys’ ‘Wirtschaftswerte (Economic Values) (Second Version)’
  • Bottom: After Walker Evans’ ‘Annie Mae Burroughs’
 
These drawings were made in the same way: drawn on small sheets using prepared photographs as reference material and assembled to make faulty but coherent representations of their subject matter. It is hoped that, by being hung together, the disparate works shown here (a Renaissance painting from a gallery in Potsdam, a sculpture made in 1980 concerned with a divided Germany, and an iconic photograph from a famous photo-essay), begin to relate or ‘talk’ to one another.
