Shown in The Room, City Contemporary art gallery’s dedicated solo exhibition space, Garry Harper’s selection of mixed media figurative works blends strong emotional themes, memories and glimpses of the past. Garry says, ‘People and their lives fascinate me, especially lives that were lived years ago. The figures are inspired from various sources that capture the imagination and make you wonder as to who or where. The spark could come from a sitter modelling for me or drawings from sketchbooks or found photographs. I try to instil in my work more than just an image – an attempt to play on the viewer’s imagination and give them the first steps of a story.’

In its main room, the CCA Summer Show (13th May – 6th Aug) features gallery regulars Adrian Wiszniewski RSA, Ian Cook RI RSW RGI, Fiona Haldane, Jonathan Mitchell, Garry Harper, Philip Braham RSA, Fee Dickson Reid, Greer Ralston, Mark Beresford, Nael Hanna and Jonathan Shearer.
