See event details for live demos & Plein Air demo/tour dates & times.
This installation traces the many paths and places within walking distance of home, with the altered perspective of physical distancing and restricted travel of these current times. "The series of 49 tiny lockdown prints was created as a way of focusing my attention away from the anxiety of news and current events onto the narrow view of daily walks, and the rest of the installation has evolved from these small notations into larger works." - Celia Walker
*Due to the extended level 3 lockdown, Sefton's planned exhibition opening will be cancelled. Depot Artspace will also be closed until August 26th. Watch this space *Final Dates TBC* Sefton Rani's work involves the concept of “urban tapa” which is taking the traditional form of tapa and reenergising it with modern materials, methods and motifs that reflect the contemporary environment we live in. His work is primarily created with the use of paint skins where paint is applied on
glass or plastic and when dry, peeled off and collaged to form layers that represent time and the history of the object or surface.
