EXHIBITION: JAKE ATTREE

 

Using his unique heavy-worked style, the Dean Clough based artist has captured the workers going about their tasks with amazing detail.

“Initially the drawings were done in a sketchbook on cold winter days, through spring, into summer and then autumn. I tried to record as accurately as I could the overhaul of this magnificent 18th Century building.  Latterly, these drawings have been developed into oil pastels and larger drawings.  It has been a great pleasure and a privilege for me to observe this transformation chronologically and at first hand.”

Jake’s work will be on display in The Piece Hall Gallery, located on the Arcade level of the west wall, from 1 August and will run until 15 October.

Jake Attree is represented by Messum's of Cork Street, London
