F-NUMBER ALEC JACKSON CHARLES EMERSON DAVE MORGAN-DAVIES EMILE ROBERTS NIGE’ OLLIS MARTEN RÖSTEL MICHAEL REEVES MILO NEWMAN RACHEL SOKAL F-Number is the Grant Bradley Gallery’s first hand picked photography exhibition. Following on from recent successful open submission exhibitions where photography played a strong central role, F-Number seeks to showcase top regional photographers engaged in the most creative applications of the medium. The medium of photography allows a broad range of subject matter, capturing instant candid moments or detailed, intricately arranged compositions. F-Number aims to show the entire spectrum of the medium with no preference given to particular disciplines to result in a widely varied exhibition that shows photography at its most creative, personal and exploratory.

VIEWS OF A CITY It sometimes takes an artist’s outlook to show you something different about the city you live in, revealing a curious, unconventional beauty in the spaces more often avoided or overlooked. Simon’s paintings arise from his longstanding interest in British urban scenery. “I like subways, abandoned buildings and anywhere with concrete, rusting metal and graffiti,” he says. “They’re the places you’re not expected to find beautiful, but I do.” Simon is particularly attracted to the sense of melancholy and unease these spots can evoke. “These kinds of spaces are all about modern fears. They can seem very threatening, but at the same time, because they’re off the beaten track, there’s something very calming about them.” “Simon’s paintings bring a sometimes eerie sense of the unknown to familiar sights, reminding us that however well we know a place, there are always previously un-glimpsed views to seek out.” Judy Darley Creative Boom Magazine
