You Want It Darker
5 February – 21 March 2021
Opening 6pm Friday 5 February 2021
Stephen Harrison uses a variety of materials and themes to express his ideas and thoughts. From evocative lighthouses to beaten WW2 aeroplanes and lonely thylacines, his work is inspired by many things including Shakespeare, animal rights, mythology, dreamscapes and comics. His continued drawing practice has been overshadowed by sculpture, especially bronze works.
