Award winning artist brings exhibition to Huddersfield
Award winning artist, Mandy Payne, brings her Brutalism inspired ‘Out of Time’ exhibition to Huddersfield Art Gallery.
What is the exhibition about?
Organised by Kirklees Council and supported by Arts Council England, the solo exhibition explores issues of gentrification, social housing and the flux of urban landscapes.
The Sheffield-based painter and printmaker uses concrete, spray paint, marble and stone lithographs to capture Brutalist architecture, modernism and beauty in ordinary or overlooked places.
What work does the exhibition feature?
The exhibition features works from Huddersfield, London, Sheffield, Salford and the North East, including Sheffield’s iconic Park Hill flats; one of the UK’s largest examples of Brutalist architecture.
Payne has exhibited across the UK and internationally with recent shows at the Royal Academy in London, The Walker Gallery in Liverpool and Jiangsu Art Museum, China.
She was awarded John Moores Painting Prize in 2014, the New Light Prize in 2015 and the Contemporary British Painting Prize in 2016. She was shortlisted for this year’s prestigious Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize, the UK’s leading competition for British contemporary representational painting and drawing. She has also been nominated as an Artist to Watch in the Guardian’s Rising Stars.
When does the exhibition finish?
The ‘Out of Time’ exhibition runs until 4 January 2020 at Huddersfield Art Gallery. Entry is free of charge.
