Private View from 6.00pm – 9.00pm, Thursday 16th April
Brutal landscapes and works of industrial decay at Cambridge Galleries
April 15th – May 5th
Cambridge Galleries invite you to Phil Barrington’s new show ‘Cracktown v1.0’, with the Private View on Thursday 16th April 2009.
Known for his stark, oppressive landscapes and figures with obscured faces, Phil produces and near-destroys stunning contemporary photographic works which are executed with a morbid attention to detail, lovingly enhanced with scratches, bleach, acrylic and spray paint with varying degrees of subtlety. National Geographic this is not.
Come, have a glass of absinthe or wine, and inspect this collection of truly unique photographic works that exude contemporary feelings of media-enhanced doom with a healthy dash of nihilism. This distinctive show will feature memorable works of sociopathy and moral failure, fused with beautiful images of grue and rust, also including brand spanking new versions of some well-known works.
Open to the public from Wednesday 15th April, Phil Barrington’s show runs until 5th May before moving on to other venues around East Anglia as part of his Cracktown v 1.0 Tour 2009.
